Amazon Prime has more than 100 million members. Are you one of them? Many of us have come to expect two-day or even next-day delivery. But what are the unintended consequences of convenience? This hour:  We hear how Amazon has changed the way we shop and ship forever. 

Author Emily Guendelsberger joins the show to share her experience working in an Amazon warehouse. 

And we want to hear from you, too: Have you worked in an Amazon fulfillment center, or thought about how Amazon shapes your shopping habits? 

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

GUESTS:

Carmen Baskauf and Chion Wolf contributed to this show. 

Lucy leads Connecticut Public's strategies to deeply connect and build collaborations with community-focused organizations across the state.
Robyn is the senior producer of 'Seasoned,' a show celebrating food and farms. She's food-obsessed, loves to bake, and constantly thinks about people in the food world, both nationally and locally, who have compelling stories to tell about food.
