In this episode, host Chris Thornton interviews New York Times technology reporter Mike Isaac, whose Uber coverage won the Gerald Loeb Award for distinguished business reporting. They discuss the troubled internal culture at Uber and the values that helped to perpetuate it. As we encourage organizations to double down on culture, this is a lesson on what not to do as we enter into the future of work.
