This week’s show looks at the top news stories on, and the team talks about the latest death involving a driverless vehicle, how Slingshot coffee is making a national impact right from our backyard, changes with a former bigwig at Epic Games and the Triangle ranking in the top spots for best cities to start a career and for the best pay.

Jason, Michael, and Laura kick off a new addition to the show where we hear from listeners and friends about different topics in the tech landscape and our first guest is a friend of the show and Director of Big Top, Molly Demarest. Molly gives us some perspective from the startup community concerning Amazon HQ2.

The latest stories from Amazon Watch 2018 bring us to taxes and how the Triangle might have an inroad to HQ2 because of the money Amazon would save in our region.

Our conversation spotlight is with the co-founder of Momentum Learning, Jessica Mitsch and how their fully immersive coding school is changing the landscape on continuing education.

At the end of our show, Jason, Michael and Laura talk about Google IO and if the new technology that Google is releasing will actually help us to unplug.
