About this Episode

This week's episode is all about Uber. In the wake of CEO Travis Kalanick's departure, we wanted to round up everything Uber has been in trouble for in Canada and the US. With the help of several Canadian media outlets and one long WIRED article, we run you through all the controversies (and a few non-issues that made headlines) since 2013.

Speed round:
-China and Canada officially agreed not to spy on each other for trade secrets
-Apple has an "Unapologetically Canadian" section in the app store and a 3-act playlist for the top 150 Canadian songs
-Apparently companies think millennials need to be paid immediately for shift work or they'll leave
-Nintendo has officially announced their SNES Classic, to be released in September.
