    Thanks for the episode Jasper! This was an awesome episode. I learned a lot…. I am wondering what the future holds now for the future of airbnb, after hearing whats going on in NYC…People getting evicted in NYC, new regulations, big business who are anti airbnb….inevitably other cities like mine will follow their lead… cool podcast again!

    Jasper – thanks for a great podcast experience. You were my first and like my first guest I will not forget it.

    Mack – Airbnb isn’t going anywhere. There will be some restrictions and regulations. Look at San Francisco. Growing pains of a company changing the world. Airbnb will need to adapt to the different cities needs, etc.
