Is The Sharing Economy Ready To Hop Into A Hot Tub?

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. We'll soon find out if the sharing economy is ready to hop into a hot tub. An app in the works in San Francisco will allow people to rent out their urban and suburban nooks, the front porch, a garden alcove, an outdoor sauna, the kind of private places you usually want to keep strangers out of.
