Suzanne Lipovsky

The Three Body Problem book trilogy
Shoshana Akins
42:32
The news is overwhelming sometimes but I highly recommend the What a Day podcast. Super short and informative and goes up daily.
Spencer Gober

Coast is a British docu-series all about the British coastline. I found it on the BritBox app.

Podcast- Hidden Brain
Moriah Richardson
43:31
@spencer is Coast a nature documentary?
Jesse Buerk
44:10
Love, Death, & Robots - animated sci-fi shorts mostly based on short stories. I like that they’re all only 10-15 minutes long.
Spencer Gober
44:20
Each episode has a different theme. Some of them are more nature in focus, but others look at history, culture, economy, etc.
Moriah Richardson
45:17
I'll check that out! That seems really interesting
Soren Harward
45:24
"One Cut of the Dead" — Japanese horror(ish) movie about a film crew that finds themselves in the middle of a real zombie apocalypse.
Moriah Richardson
45:35
Also @Alison Uno is a very important life skill haha
Morgan Hugo
46:29
zombies are where it is at
Soren Harward
47:00
And my 9yo daughter and I have been reading the Earthsea books, which I haven't read since I was her age, and I'm enjoying them even more now.
Alison Hastings
47:23
I heard someone say (John Hodgman --- podcast) that with COVID19 is where we all are the zombies because of how much we don't know about it and how easily it is transmitted.

I need to try square pie. I'm more of a Santuchi's person in Bella Vista/Queen Village
Alison Hastings
50:05
Now we just need home delivery on high quality bagels.
Soren Harward
50:06
I really wish that our local ice cream shop were open. My family has made a weekly habit of ordering take-out — far more often than we typically do — from all the independent restaurants that are still open, and that we really hope survive,
Frances Harwell
50:10
Grove delivery... LOL
Alison Hastings
50:52
@Benjamin good tip on seafood.
Shawn Megill Legendre (he/him)

Gaffney Fabrics near me in Germantown has been constantly busy, with appropriately physically distanced lines.
Suzanne Lipovsky

@Morgan, I was all for Santucci's until I made the leap to Square Pie

I've triggered that exact counter a bunch of times this month!
Morgan Hugo
01:43:15
Can animals accidentally trigger the counter?
Maridarlyn Gonzalez
01:43:32
It looks like you are not alone Soren :)
Soren Harward
01:46:38
Yeah, that 202 trail increase is not a surprise at all. I've been running on that trail after 9pm periodically for several years. Last month was the first time I've ever seen another person running that late.

Shoshana Akins

Thanks for the comment, Michael! We were going to ask all attendees to answer a similar question that addresses that...
Shoshana Akins
01:51:55
Is there a specific street where you've noticed dangerous levels of speeding? Let us know the limits (e.g. Delaware Ave. from Frankford to Aramingo) and we'll try to take a look.

my dog is a serious lap dog.... so he usually starts to pop up in the afternoon.
Maridarlyn Gonzalez
02:01:13
Thank you Eva! For those who have not answered yet, here is the question again
Maridarlyn Gonzalez
02:01:29
Is there a specific street where you've noticed dangerous levels of speeding? Let us know the limits (e.g. Delaware Ave. from Frankford to Aramingo) and we'll try to take a look.
Maridarlyn Gonzalez
02:03:16
Yes, it’s always nice to see your dog make a guest appearance Alison :-)
Morgan Hugo
02:06:13
I also wonder if Septa can start the bus at different blocks. My friend's home care worker had to wait 90 minutes for the bus to get to work
eva hayes
02:08:19
Will Covid affect regional transportation development investment plans already in place? Will that be a new discussion for DVRPC, reallocation of transportation funding now that travel patternshas changed so drastically?
Jesse Buerk
02:10:07
@eva - I’m sure we will have to rethink a lot of things! I’m hoping if more people work from home, we won’t need to spend $ to address road congestion, and maybe we could spend more to make space for safe walking and biking.

Wet, windy and cold weather affects if ozone develops, and particulate matter staying in the air and being caught by an air quality station.
Alison Hastings
02:15:27
And our weather over the last 2 months has been fairly wet, colder than usual, and windy.
eva hayes
02:15:57
Now that citizens are spending more time within their communities and neighborhoods, will DVRPC offer grants and assistance to improve recreational and mobility in these spaces? In other words, my neighborhood desperately needs sidewalk improvements and street crossing improvements more than ever and could really use those excess trans funding to do it.
William Matulewicz
02:18:31
May be some good models from Roosevelt's administration.
Alison Hastings
02:20:16
Our trading partners on the East Coast are typically South America and Europe.
Alison Hastings
02:20:30
Or at least in the Philadelphia area.
Morgan Hugo
02:22:35
Later question, but my job is distributing food to seniors/disabled who can't physically make it to the food pantry. Is there a way to fully look at food deserts and where they are and in relation to poverty/disability/age of residents
Frances Harwell
