One of the most fun and eco friendly ways to be transported from one place to another is via pedicab, essentially an oversized tricycle with room for passengers. This week's guest, Jaime Chapman, has been driving pedicabs since 2012 and opened Pineapple Pedicabs in 2019, bringing this fun form of bike-driven transportation here to Reno. Jaime is also involved in dog rescue and rehoming, trying to create a dog park in her neighborhood, and a frequent Burning Man attendee with plans to attend the unofficial "free burn" this year.
On this episode, Conor and Jaime talk about the origins of Pineapple Pedicabs and the services they provide, growing a business during the pandemic, dealing with weather and smoke conditions, rescuing animals from kill shelters in California, her campaign to install an off-leash dog area at Wilkinson Park, how she fell in love with Burning Man, what she expects from this year's unofficial, unregulated event in the desert, and so much more!
