This episode just played on all of my fears. I also thought that Lyft was “the good” ride sharing company, but this makes it clear that they all have safety issues. Warning: This episode is so important to listen to, but it does include descriptions of rape.

how do we ensure that ride share services have our safety in mind? this was such a heartbreaking account of a survivor’s story about her lyft ride😔 that took a turn for the worse. pls give it a listen.

Thanks @rosaguac for this echo. Just wow. I was gasping at every turn. Definitely necessary listen.

@mm @rosaguac such an important episode! Although this makes me even more angry that Gimlet canceled The Cut.
