Welcome to the 165th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. editor James Ledbetter.

This week, Inc. writers and editors explore a recent Supreme Court Hearing, South Dakota vs. Wayfair, that could decide whether e-commerce companies must collect an Internet sales tax in states where they don't have a physical presence. In an article for Inc., I note that Justices were divided by the end of Tuesday's arguments, and the decision could have broad implications for the future of commerce.

Then, staff writer Will Yakowicz discusses how a wrongfully convicted former prison inmate, Calvin Buari, is building an Uber-like service for prison visits. Buari, 47, spent 22 years in prison, before a judge vacated his conviction in 2017.

Finally, staff writer Emily Canal explores how two frat brothers built a $3.6 million smoothie startup. That company, Shake Smart, was this week designated as an Inc. 30 under 30 honoree.

As always, you can listen to individual episodes of the Inc. Uncensored podcast on the Panoply Network or on Apple Podcasts, where you can also subscribe.
