Land of the Giants: Delivery Wars – #1. Cost Of Convenience


The fourth season of a podcast series focused on Big Tech. This series is examining the food delivery wars .

About the series

Recode’s award-winning narrative franchise, Land of the Giants, and Eater have teamed up to kick off a special mini-series, “Delivery Wars.” Hosted by food writer and host of See Something, Say Something, Ahmed Ali Akbar, the new series will explore how food delivery became a multi-billion dollar industry, and the effects it has had on restaurants, workers, and consumers.

The four-part episodic series will delve into how food delivery apps are changing the way we eat—within a couple of clicks—and how the third party app ecosystem has dramatically changed consumer behavior, created new job markets, and disrupted small businesses, with co-hosting from special guests Jason Del Ray, Recode’s senior correspondent, and Amanda Kludt, Eater’s editor-in-chief.

#1 – Cost Of Convenience – 22 June 2021

Restaurant delivery apps have made it possible for many of us to order pretty much anything we want to eat with the click of a button. And during the pandemic that convenience became even more valuable. But at what cost? Some restaurant owners say they now need the apps to survive, but resent what they feel to be forced partnerships. And other restaurant owners are finding ways to take the power back. From Recode and the Vox Media Podcast Network in partnership with Eater.
