Exploring the Jetsonian Future with Clem Newton-Brown

In our pilot episode, we interview the fascinating and inspiring Clem Newton-Brown.

Clem is a former barrister, Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne and Member of the Victorian Parliament.

He is also a key player in getting Uber Air to choose Melbourne as one of the first international test cities for their urban aerial ride sharing service.

He has spent a lifetime around politics, law, planning, and cities, pushing the boundaries. He started the first water taxi service on the Yarra River in 1992 and around the same time was getting around on a powered scooter, 25 years before the current trend for micro-mobility.

With Uber Air's plans for Melbourne, Clem’s Skyportz business is developing the infrastructural network required.

In his conversation with Brenton, Clem shares his insights on how air mobility is the future for urban transportation, and how our experience of urban mobility will transform our lives.
