Boston PedicabOn today's show I'll talk to a driver -- or I guess I should say rider -- for Boston's most unusual taxicab company, Boston Pedicab. I found my guest at the AltWheels Festival last weekend, where he sat among million-dollar hydrogen-powered cars and hi-tech hybrids on the simplest (and probably the greenest) vehicle at the show: a giant tricycle with a 3-person seat on the back.

Brogan Graham was one of the first riders for Boston Pedicab, a human-powered cab company that opened in 2005. His job is all about being anywhere on a moment's notice, but he sat still for a few minutes at the festival to talk about what it's like to pedal hundreds of pounds through Boston traffic for nothing but tips.
