Davisville, 10/27/14: DK, who made Davis even friendlier to bikes, moves on

Dave KempThe green bike boxes and bigger bike lanes you’ve seen downtown? Dave Kemp helped bring them here. The city of Davis hired him to champion active transportation in early 2012, but now DK is leaving for a promotion to a similar role in Boulder, Colo. Before he left, he returned to Davisville to talk about his nearly 3 years in Davis; balancing the needs of bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians; the initial results of the Fifth Street redesign (aka the euphemistically named “road diet”), and more. He first appeared on the show on Feb. 27, 2012.

Davisville, 10/13/14: Films for October with critic Derrick Bang

Face in the nightDavis movie reviewer Derrick Bang (the Davis Enterprise, Derrick Bang on Film) returns to the show this week to list some good movies to watch for Halloween. He offers suggestions in three categories—classics that aren’t widely known, horror, and “vicarious glop.” We also learn that the holiday when the original Dracula debuted wasn’t Halloween, like you might expect—it was Valentine’s Day. Douse the lights and tune in.
