So Uber and lyft drovers put taxicabs out of business because they are cheaper and don’t get paid as much, and once those taxicabs are out of service they are bitching about not making enough money. Lolololololol kinda made their own beds didn’t they?

A really well made podcast. My daily jogging companion. I'm from India and they don't have much india related content, but love it nonetheless. Great job.

What do you mean by "catastrophy"? (min 14:20) this is just a political issue. Catastrophy is what is going on in Venezuela: power outage, lack of food, medicines, water, paramilitary directed and founded by the government.

It's funny how everyone so triggered about foreign governments and yet don't think twice about the international corporations that have no allegiance to any country either... 🤔
