People Movers

by Lindsey Green

You might use one everyday, but have you ever given much thought to escalators? Lindsay Green has. In People Movers, she makes moving staircases more interesting than you ever thought they could be – using compelling, human-driven stories.

It turns out the story of escalators in Australia is a story of history, sociology and technology. It’s a story of wonder (a magic, moving staircase!) and fear (what if my toes get caught in this escalator?). Lindsay is a self-deprecating, endearingly awkward host, and she’s earnest in her pursuit of the best escalator facts and stories.

Episodes are short — less than 20 minutes — so you can get one in on your morning commute while navigating a labyrinth of escalators.
