👋 Hi there! Welcome to my newsletter!
Oversharing is a smart and accessible guide to the most important trends in the gig economy, urban transport, and sustainable cities. It’s written by me, Ali Griswold, a former journalist and leading expert on this space.
Oversharing readers include lots of professionals—venture capitalists, bankers and dealmakers, C-suiters, consultants, and top-tier academics—as well as other cool people interested in the intersection of technology, labor, and urban development. Oversharing provides some of the smartest and most in-depth analysis of this sector while also being fun to read.
💰 Why you should subscribe
I know, you already get a bunch of Substacks. The unbundling of content is crazy! But here’s why you should add Oversharing to your list.
Oversharing makes you smarter about the gig economy. Do you take Uber? Ride scooters or bike-share? Order from food delivery apps? Ever wondered how you should tip your delivery driver, or if all those app service fees might actually be worsening inflation? Oversharing helps unpack these questions, and sometimes even answers them.
Oversharing is better, period. You can get your news lots of places, but this newsletter is hands down the best source for news and analysis on gig companies and the gig sector. I know that because I covered it for nearly 10 years as a staff reporter for Quartz and Slate, and because I still spend hours each week reading what’s out there. Oversharing goes deep, like diving into the math behind the Parrott-Reich earnings floor for New York ride-hail drivers. It also sees the bigger picture, like the political evolution of the Uber playbook and what that means for Silicon Valley.
Subscribing supports my work and keeps this newsletter in business. The public-service-minded journalist in me wants to publish everything for free, but we all have to earn a living and this is how I earn mine. If you value and can afford to pay for Oversharing, I hope you do. If you pay and are constantly forwarding issues of Oversharing to other people at your company or organization, get in touch about purchasing a group subscription.

Most of the archives are available exclusively to paying subscribers, but I’ve dropped the paywall from a few of my most popular past issues so you can get a sense of what Oversharing is all about.
