Land of the Giants
Facebook. Apple. Amazon. Netflix. Google. These five tech giants have changed the world. But how? And at what cost? Recode’s Jason Del Rey starts with The Rise of Amazon. Over two decades, an online marketplace for books became the world’s most valuable company. We examine how it got its power, what it’s doing with it, and what might happen to it in the future. Produced by the Vox Media Podcast Network.
