Internet Gig Work (Alexandrea Ravenelle)

In this episode, we talk to Alexandrea Ravenelle (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) about her research on gig economy work. Her new book, Hustle and Gig: Struggling and Surviving in the Sharing Economy (University of California Press) details the motivations and trials of those who work on Internet-brokered gigs (like TaskRabbit, Uber, AirBnB, and the now-defunct KitchenSurfing).
