07/13/2017: Let's travel in a vacuum tube

We're getting closer and closer to ultra-fast travel. Hyperloop One recently completed a test that sent a vehicle down a vacuum track at 70 miles per hour. On today's show, we'll talk to the company's co-founders about their goals and what this technology can actually be used for. Next, we'll speak with Tina Sharkey, cofounder of the new online grocery store Brandless, about their company's unique business model — everything at the store is just 3 bucks.
