PODCAST: Airbnb, the gig economy and Detroit

The newest installment of The Daily Detroit Happy Hour Podcast goes al fresco for the first time as we explore what it’s like working for Airbnb from the perspective of two Detroiters. The digital lodging service says it wants to double its economic impact in the city to $20 million a year.

Nelson Sanders is the head clothier at 1701 Bespoke, founder of The Seen fashion collective and the host of a fashion-oriented “Trip” on Airbnb, where he’s known as Nelson Sharp.

Meanwhile, Tommie Robbins is a former Detroit Public Schools teacher who now earns his living renting out rooms in his New Center home and driving for Lyft.

We talk Airbnb hosting, Detroit’s imprint on fashion and listen to the People Mover pass over our heads.

We’re available wherever fine podcasts are downloaded:
