Cabbies: Taxi "Cabbie" Confessions

NEW YORK, NY - Taxi Cabbie Confessions is a short documentary produced by Current TV. Not to be confused with HBO's Taxi Cab Confessions, this video is about the people who drive New York's iconic Yellow Cabs. Some of those featured have turned their life behind the wheel into a sort of cottage industry. One of them, David Freedenberg explores New York's culinary world with his Famous Fat Dave's 5 Borough Eating Tour on the Wheels of Steel. Melissa Plaut started writing a blog (New York Hack) about her experiences and turned it into a book called Hack: How I Stopped Worrying About What to Do with My Life and Started Driving a Yellow Cab. Bereford Simmons is a 35 year taxi veteran, social activist, late night FM radio DJ, and musician. John McDonagh is a stand-up comedian, political activist, radio show host, and writer of a blog called: Hack Shots of New York.
Hack: How I Stopped Worrying About What to Do with My Life and Started Driving a Yellow Cab by Melissa Plaut is available on Amazon.com
