This week begins with reactions to that 2-1 defeat. No stranger to sporting let-downs, Adam helpfully reminds everyone of the time England failed to reach Euro 2008, then we analyze why the United States may never develop much world class soccer talent. Next (5:25), we review “The Upstarts,” Brad Stone’s lively new book on the founding of AirBnB and Uber - perhaps Silicon Valley’s two most divisive startups. Although the story of Uber’s rise has been well-documented, the book still managed to hold our attention throughout.
