Pick Me Up
Pick Me Up is a podcast about Lyft drivers who are chasing big dreams both on and off the road. Each episode, we’ll meet one of them to find out where they’re coming from. And then, we’ll give them a little — pick me up — to help them get to where they’re going. Pick Me Up is a production of Lyft and Gimlet Creative, hosted by Mariah Smith.
