When you stand on the brink of staggering change, the path forward can often be found by looking back. That's the premise of Dan Albert's excellent new book Are We There Yet? The American Automobile Past, Present and Driverless, which scours the history of cars in the United States for clues about the driverless future. In this week's episode of Merge Now, Dan and Ed discuss some of the most interesting episodes of automotive history and their bearing on the future, as well as the deeply personal nature of our relationships with cars and driving.
