about this episode

After a summer hiatus, our News Roundtable is back! For this special Tuesday edition, Ryan Block (AOL) and Declan McCullagh (Recent.io) sit down with Jason to tackle today’s timeliest topics. On deck: Amazon’s purchase of Twitch, the banning and hacking of Secret, how Twitter affected and enhanced the events in Ferguson, MI, all things Uber — and much more.

Plus BING Launch of the Week, featuring three recent Y Combinator alums: Edyn (the connected garden), LocalLift (crowdsourcing for local businesses), and Gingko Bioworks (engineering new organisms).
