Transit Diaries Podcast episode 5: Parody CTA Twitter accounts

Twitter has many parody accounts of celebrities, organizations and brands. Chicago's CTA has quite a few, each putting their own unique and quirky spin on the happenings that occur on the bus and train. In this episode we speak to the creator of CTA CIA, a CTA parody account consisting of a collective of individuals who document their travels while in transit. This is their story.

Transit Diaries Podcast episode 4: Out of control rideshare, cab drivers

EWhen it comes to using a rideshareservice or taking a taxi, we’re essentially putting our well-being in the hands of another person. Usually the ride goes off without a hitch, and we get to our destination comfortably and safely. But imagine instead of a driver taking you to your destination immediately, that person puts your safety in jeopardy. That’s what happened to Alexis Taylor, a 25-year-old Edgewater resident and friend of mine, on March 20. This is the story she told me.

Transit Diaries Podcast episode 1: Missed Connections on the CTA
