Death by dangerous cycling law nears the statute books

Sunday 12th August 2018

HOST: Carlton Reid.

GUESTS: Laura Laker and Matt Briggs.

SPONSOR: Jenson USA

TOPIC:

The mainstream media has today fixated on one small part of a Department for Transport press release: the bit about a death-by-dangerous-cycling law. I was on Sky News this morning talking about it and Laura Laker was on BBC. Matt Briggs was on loads of channels. Audio is from the Sky and BBC coverage, and there’s also a long-form interview with Matt.

Here are the previous Spokesmen episodes featuring an expert panel discussing the Briggs Campaign and the long interview with Matt Briggs from September 2017.

“You saved that cyclist’s life!”

Thursday 9th August 2018

HOST: Carlton Reid.

GUESTS: Guitar Ted and Jack Stevens and Ned Boulting.

SPONSOR: Jenson USA

TOPICS:

Gravel riding in the USA.


Jack Stevens saved a woman on a bike in London from being crushed under the wheels of a heavy goods vehicle. He filmed the incident, it went viral and then the video was picked up by Metro, a British newspaper which, in a bizarre tweet, blamed the cyclist. Tour de France commentator Ned Boulting called out the Metro newspaper for that duff framing, and the tweet was then deleted. Show audio also includes the apology from the Metro newspaper’s social media manager Jay Jaffa.
