Always great conversation!

I work in automotive advertising, so mobility is my life but I’m so fascinated by the ride sharing side of transporting people. The discussions presented by Harry and his guest really make you look at the world of transportation in a way that many don’t but many should. Great host, great guest and conversations that really matter. Keep up the great work!
