    Uber for X exists almost everywhere, but in this episode, I talk to someone who’s found a new Uber for X industry: construction materials! I’m chatting with Matt Lafferty, the CEO and co-founder of Curri, about Curri, which specializes in last mile delivery of construction supplies. Curri hires drivers in the gig economy, so this is an excellent option for drivers looking to get into a different line of delivery work.
