about this episode

Glenn Greenwald takes his renown – and all of Snowden’s leaked documents – with him to a new for-profit news venture backed by Pierre Omidyar. A source inside Uber leaked a screenshot with its revenue numbers to Valleywag, and the company is doing better than observers thought. A look at Twitter a month out of its initial public offering. And for the Bing Launch of the Week: SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket actually  launched a commercial satellite into orbit, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos unveils plans for drone delivery of packages in 4-5 years, and subscription tech news site The Information launches. Our panel of top journos Sarah Lacy, Paul Carr and Molly Wood dig into the big news. Plus, Paul and Sarah on NSFW’s acquisition by Pando.
