The average Rideshare trip.

Hi driver, what’s my name? Ok can you take me and my 8 friends in your Honda Fit? Thanks, we just came from the Soup and Coffee convention with a bunch of tasty souvenirs. All windows down, we’re all chain-smokers. We’ll be having 3 different conversations and we’ll all shriek when we pass a Taco Bell, demanding that you go through the drive thru because we paid for the trip so we basically own you. Ooh just a quick stop at the liquor store cuz it’s only like a mile out of the way from my house, come on. And can you drop some of us off 10 minutes down the road? Thanks for the trip, 5 stars for sure. I’ll tip you in the app!

Info-tainment. Heavy on the “taint”.

It seems like the hosts of the show have enough gig work experience that they could share information or tips that would help new to moderately experienced gig workers. But it feels as though they consciously choose not to. Instead, you just get a bunch of surface layer, warehouse style water cooler talk. Nothing really funny or entertaining. It sounds like the hosts don’t enjoy doing the podcast or that it’s a chore. Also, the majority of the stories or information has been in circulation for several days before the episodes drop. Lastly, they operate in the same circles as many of the Youtubers in this genre. As a result, you get a lot of the same boring guests.

I learn to you guys all the time. I’m a driver from the Jacksonville Florida market. I’m also a merchant seaman.
