GeekWire Podcast: Why millennials love Amazon; the ‘Uber for kids’; and Microsoft the Musical

Amazon ousted Apple this year as the most loved brand among millennials, people age 19 through 39, according to a new study. What does this say about the future of the world? OK, that might be taking it too far, but some of our resident millennials offer their take on the finding on this episode of the GeekWire Podcast.

And in news for slightly older generations, the startup HopSkipRide made its debut in Seattle this week, promising to safely shuttle your kids around town. We explain how it works and try to decide if we and our kids will use it.

Plus, in the Random Channel, Microsoft the Musical, insights from Burning Man, and the latest from the chicken beat.
