The Awl Podcast: Uber

Welcome to THE UBER EPISODE. We’ve got Jonathan Shainin, editor of Long Reads at The Guardian, Jay Kang, a contributor to NYT Mag, and Matt Buchanan.

The questions: Is Uber the future of everything? Is public transit doomed? Will surge pricing spread… everywhere? Are we all destined to labor forever at the whims of app children??? OR: Is the anti-Uber movement just soft-left polite politics? Haha???

For background, read Matt’s piece on Uber’s “Endgame” and see Travis Kalanick’s response here.
