This podcast was done quite a while back, but I wanted to let you all know I will occasionally be interviewed by the great guys at Mzansi Urban Radio, a group of techies based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We discuss the struggles of Uber, which includes its fitful attempt to entrench itself in the self driving cars sector.

This podcast focuses on the ongoing litigation between Google and Uber over the technology that will drive autonomous cars. Google has accused a former lead engineer of leaving the company to start a tech firm that was snagged by Uber months later for a handsome sum. There is plenty of banter; don't expect the most polished political analysis as I was doing this very early in the morning so I could chat with these guys at a decent hour in their time zone.

These guys are a lot of fun, so I hope you enjoy listening.
