Tired of cooking after Thanksgiving? We’ve got you covered with our rundown of the best food delivery services, with advice from one of the top experts in the field (or at least one of the most experienced food-delivery orderers), GeekWire’s Taylor Soper. Plus, a teenage inventor turns the iPhone into a stethoscope, and a historian explains the ingredients of the nation’s technology hubs.
This special episode of the GeekWire radio show features some of our favorite segments from the past year. Listen to the show below, and continue reading for more information and related links.
The food delivery services we tested included Caviar, GrubHub, Munchery, Postmates, Peachd, Lish, Bitesquad and Eat24. Listen to our thoughts on many of them starting in the second segment of the show. For more, check out Taylor’s exhaustive review of all the services we tested.
The guest in our third segment is Suman Mulumudi, 15-year-old inventor of the Steth IO smartphone-enabled stethoscope. When he joined us in May, he was fresh off an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and a first place finish at the WTIA Spring First Look Forum.
In the final segment, our guest in the studio is Margaret O’Mara, an associate professor of history at the University of Washington whose research focuses on the tech industry’s impact on our communities, cities, politics and culture. Her past work includes the book, “Cities of Knowledge: Cold War Science and the Search for the Next Silicon Valley.”
