Roughly Speaking episode 433:

Baltimore Sun reporter Kevin Rector spent some time this past summer taking a deep look at the proposal to build a multibillion-dollar, magnetic levitation train (or Maglev) system along the Northeast Corridor of the United States, starting with a track between Washington and Baltimore. Kevin’s reporting on Maglev took him to Japan, and he spent a lot of time speaking with those in the Baltimore-Washington region who want to replicate Japan’s 311-mph Maglev system here. Dan interviewed Kevin on a busy platform at Penn Station in Baltimore to hear what he learned about high-speed train travel that could get passengers from Baltimore to Washington in 15 minutes.

Reporting for this project was funded in part by a fellowship from the International Center for Journalists.
