This week we continue the along the way theme by talking with Brian Hurley- a local academic who has studied and experienced walking in America.  Our time with Brian is broken into 3 chapters:

  • Chapter 1::  The Theory of Walking
  • Chapter 2:: The Walk
  • Chapter 3::  What Walking Taught Me

You can find Brian’s dissertation that we discussed here

In the first installment of the “Along the Way” series, Matt & Ginny bring in neighbor and friend, LC, for a Matt Chat.  We’re talking football, airports, personal rules for social media use as well as Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes and much more.
