Is Amazon your guilty pleasure?

We're a conflicted bunch.

On one hand, we love to hate Amazon in Seattle because the city grew too fast and it's made problems for a lot of people. But a lot of us are also huge Amazon shoppers. 

Think about that: Amazon is so good at what it does that even people who say they shouldn't, use it.

On this special pre-Cyber Monday episode of Prime(d), we talk about that feeling you get when you order something online, but  fear it's destroying chunks of your community. 

Matt Martin contributed to producing this episode. We benefited immensely our friends at CityLab, and from The Everything Store by Brad Stone. Our theme song is by Raymond Scott. You also heard music by Seattle band The Golden Idols.
