Episode Description 
Google has announced that its Shopping Express same-day delivery service (initially offered near San Francisco) will now be extended to parts of Los Angeles and Manhattan. It's Google's answer to Amazon Prime. So why are the companies so focused on  same-day delivery? Plus, Merill Garbus, the lead singer of tUnE-yArDs, joins us to talk about how she went from being just another "chick with a ukulele" to being an artist known for performing with a looping pedal and drum machines.
