Rob Sadow, CEO and co-founder of carpooling app Scoop, joins us this week to talk about how the company got started and what they are trying to achieve.

Why do we need carpooling solutions in cities? Listen in and hear what Rob has to say about the stress and quality of life implications of driving alone, which he notes is one of the few frustrations that crosses over between personal and professional life. Rob gets into the benefits of carpooling for drivers and passengers, as well as how clustered employment improves the ability of people to ride together.

Looking forward, we discuss the shift away from single occupancy vehicles and how transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft will evolve differently than longer-distance carpools.
