Uber Lyft Drivers & Gig Economy Workers Weekly News:     This week is our 1 year anniversary of the podcast!   I run through the all the topics we have discussed so far, and give major props to the gig community for helping us grow the podcast, not just guests who have been on the show but huge props to our listeners as well.   This would not have been possible without everyone helping to build what we have, where we are, and whats ahead?!   I also have Jason Tieri on the podcast (host of The Gig Economy Podcast), and we discuss what happened this last year…  last but not least, I want to give props to the guests of the Rideshare Rodeo Podcast:Rideshare Rodeo
