Roqayah is off this week, so Kumars is joined from the top of the hour by Paris Marx, author of Road Nowhere: What Silicon Valley Gets Wrong about the Future of Transportation out July 5th from Verso Books and host of the hit podcast Tech Won’t Save Us, where they cover the intersections of labor, tech and finance.
Paris and Kumars discuss the significance of the union drive currently gaining momentum at Apple stores across the US, the recent victory of the nation’s first major US video game union at Activision Blizzard’s Raven Software, the limits of the current push by governments and corporations to produce electric vehicles for mass consumption, what could cause the crypto bubble to pop for good, and why Elon Musk can’t stop committing fraud.
