Primed is a new podcast about Amazon. I'm Alex Press, a staff writer at Jacobin, and I'll be hosting the show. Consider Primed an entry point for understanding a company that is increasingly reshaping, mediating, and controlling our lives and the planet. On this introductory episode, I'm joined by Dania Rajendra, director of Athena (https://athenaforall.org), and Alessandro Delfanti (https://delfanti.org), who has a forthcoming book on Amazon warehouse work. The three of us try to answer a pressing question: what exactly is Amazon?
