Welcome to Untold Stories from the Backseat! Here we will chat with local rideshare drivers and dive into what it’s like to pick up strangers. Ubering home has never been this exciting!
Ubering home with Amy.
Amy Cole is a longtime resident of College Station, a devoted wife and mother, and probably the reason I or anyone in my friend group isn’t dead or in jail. She joins us as our first guest in episode one of Untold Stories from the Backseat!
When I decided to do this podcast Amy was the first person I thought of. I knew her down-for-anything attitude and experience of almost 11,000 trips with Uber would be just what I needed to get the ball rolling.
Amy and I go all the way back to my freshman year. She has seen or heard quite literally everything in between my little group of regulars and me. She watched us transition from wild freshman headed to Shiner Park to being home by eleven after a few rounds of pool. I’ve even babysat her kids in a last-minute arrangement so she could go out to celebrate her birthday. Every time we are in her car, she is eager to hear the latest gossip, and we are equally excited to update her.
What to expect.
In this episode, Amy goes over what it’s really like to Uber in College Station. Amy had several interesting stories to share with us. We learned how she earned herself the nickname of the ‘College Station Mom.’ This along with the time she had a man drug out of her backseat by cops made for a quite a few laughs. She also expressed how rideshare is an escape from the stay-at-home mom life where she gets to interact with adults. This along with making money makes it all worthwhile for her.
