Welcome to the Micromobility Report Podcast!

Launching in mid-2024, the Micromobility Report Podcast will entertain and inform you through conversations with change makers working in all aspects of micromobility across business, government, academia and advocacy.

Initially we’re planning to release one podcast per month. Although we’re based in Australia, we’re intending that at least half of our podcasts will be with guests from around the world.

We’ll create a Show Notes page for each episode. This will live on our Micromobility Report website that contains hundreds of micromobility articles that we’ve published since launching in 2020.
