THIS MONTH'S SPECIAL GUESTS: We The Commuters is WNYC/Gothamist’s ongoing transit reporting that centers on the experiences of commuters. We’re here to document the highs and lows, the horrors and the glory of commuting – and to connect the voices of everyday riders to the policy experts and elected officials who determine how the system runs.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Get on board for a deep dive into the history of the MTA. Whether you love it, hate it, or want to compose more informed rage-tweets about it during your next 20 minute delay – we’ve got you covered. Your hosts Meg Pierson (TEDx, Alchemy Comedy) and Justin Williams (City College, SirusXM), along with a mysterious anonymous ghostwriter, will conduct our show through the twists and turns of history; revealing unbelievable stories, subway life-hacks, and truly upsetting details about our subway system.

She’s a two-time emcee of TEDx Greenville and currently hosts Versus at Caveat every second Saturday. In her free time, she offers people jobs at Axiom Law.
