09 – Season Two Is Coming

Season two of People Movers is coming soon.

This season I will bring you six new escalator stories.

Here’s what you can expect from the next season:


Jess: I love the fact that you are very specific with your podcast because you know not many people understand my obsession and I think you know you have a similar kind of love for something that people you know see as part of their daily lives where actually I think you and I probably appreciate the architecture, the design, the thought that’s gone into these spaces.

We couldn’t get around our cities without these wonderful things and they are very beautiful as well. When you stop and look at an escalator, it’s a very beautiful thing.


Welcome to season two of People Movers: a podcast highlighting the impact of escalators on everyday life.

I’m your host, Lindsey Green.

And it’s true, I love escalators.

Mostly I’m interested in the people of escalators: the people who ride them, the people who work with them, the people who turn escalators into art and the very few people who love them as much as I do.

Over the next season I will introduce you to some of the people I’ve met and the places I’ve traveled because of escalators. This season I’ll even talk about elevators too.

Charlotte: “It was about how do we do a campaign to tell people how to use our escalators without it being you know teaching people to suck eggs if you like.” 03:08

Katty: It gentrified. It gentrified a lot in fact. I think before it’s mainly you know local families, old people but after the escalator was being built the people that lived there change. I think many of the original families or the old people moved out and then now it’s a lot of expatriates and also maybe some serviced apartments and also the rent has of course increased.

Matt: I don’t think I want to spend that much time in an elevator ever again quite frankly after the first few days I’d end up with something akin to sea legs where I’d get this constant rocking sensation in my head. So I’d have to lie down for an evening just to stop that and then I could go and behave as you normally would as you regain your land legs as it were. So yeah I don’t I don’t want to do it again. No, that’s over with.
