That's right, trains are greater than cars if you care about livable places. There, I said it - now for some background...

Have you ever experienced something so transformational that it caused you to make a major shift in how you do something? My guest for this episode, Mike Christensen, had a large shift that completely changed the direction of his life. This came from an experience with the humble train on a trip to Europe with his father which impacted him deeply - so much so that years later in life he sold his car and has never looked back since. In this episode, you’ll hear Mike talk about how this radically changed how he experienced his home of Salt Lake City, Utah and then inspired his educational and professional direction. You'll also hear him share how it's relationally connected him to so many people in his place.

Mike founded the Utah Rail Passengers Association.
