Airing on Wednesday, April 8, 2015: First up, we chat with actor and comedian Matt Walsh, from HBO’s Veep, about comedy in the age of the internet. Next up, we talk with Dora Kingsley Vertenten, Professor at University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy, about Rand Paul’s website. And finally, we take a look at how Uber is making a profit from business travelers. Its secret? Not only is it often more convenient to get an Uber, the car service has made it easier for companies to handle their billing with Uber Business, which only requires a one-time contract that covers all transactions.
