Uber made its stock market debut last week as boss Dara Khosrowshahi rang the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange to begin trading. But this story is about more than stocks and shares. It’s the story of a company that plans to dominate the global transport business, despite the fact that is has admitted it may never make a profit. We spoke to our technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones to find out how that works and also to Kim Gittleson from the Wall Street Journal podcast to find out who did make money last Friday. Producers: Duncan Barber and Philly Beaumont. Mixed by Nicolas Raufast. Editor: John Shields.
