In this episode, we look at Marchetti's constant and why commute times tend to aggregate at under 1 hour per day. In this episode we also cover:

- What the Marchetti's constant is, and how it has driven the explosion in shared scooters and bikes.
- the Segway, why it failed and what it can teach us about the emergent micromobility phenomena...
