Amazon calls it splitsville with New York

Amazon broke up with New York City on Valentine’s Day. Or maybe, New York broke up with them.

Either way, Amazon is not moving in and New York is moving on.

In this special episode of Prime(d), we try to break down what led to this breakup. Luckily for Amazon, Virginia is for lovers and is also still totally into having Amazon’s HQ2.

Featuring Jim O'Grady from WNYC and Martin Austermuhle from WAMU .

Our theme song is "Ripples on an Evaporated Lake" by Raymond Scott. You also heard "Heartline" by Pezzner, a Seattle artist.
