I turn the tables on Richard Lummis this week as I interview him on the recent bestseller Super Pumped-the Battle for Uber by Mike Issac. Highlights of this podcast include:

  1. What were Kalanick’s leader failures?
  2. How did Trump’s first Muslim ban negatively impact Uber and start Kalanick’s downfall?
  3. What was the role of the Susan Fowler blog in the downfall of Kalanick
  4. What was the role of the Board and what were the Board missteps?
  5. What were the structural issues around stock ownership and how did they negatively impact corporate governance?
  6. Does Uber have a valid business model going forward?
  7. What is disruption and why can it be so powerful?
