Cam and Ewan debate the 'gig economy', going back and forth over whether millennials and Gen Z have lucked out with all the cool digital opportunities, or whether they're stuck building a career with scraps of work here and there without any benefits. The debate stems from an Uber driver in Toronto who is suing Uber, claiming he's an employee of the company and not a contractor.
Then we dive into the controversial practice of doxxing and whether it's justified to punish bad behavior. Mob justice doesn't come without risks, of course.
We also talk about a surprising milestone in the music world, the origins of the A&W Root Bear and its catchy jingle, and the economics around VIP parties.
