  1. NYC Terry says:

    I heard on another episode of this podcast you were looking for a NYC taxi driver who owned a CNCP/medallion.I bought mine in the late 90’s for an amount I can never pay back. If you don’t know. Medallions go back to 1937. In 1950 was the first overpricing for its time when medallions started costing $5,000. Prices raised every year until 2014 when one medallion sold for $1.4 million. Since 2014 medallions have fallen in resell price due to uber. Most drivers who purchased medallions between mid-1990’s and 2014 have debts ranging between $500,000-$800,000 that they will never be able to pay back. Since 2014 the re-sell price of medallions is between $100,000-$125,000. Worst the city does nothing to help resolve this problem they created to keep cab drivers in debt forever. If you want to know more email me back. Terry
