Jeff Bezos is at the top of his game. It started with him driving the delivery van for Amazon and dreaming of being able to afford a forklift.

Today he's been Time Magazine's Person of the Year and has an estimated personal wealth of over $80B. He runs the world's biggest internet retailer, and at the same time, he's re-inventing the Washington Post and pioneering Space. Not bad for a 53-year-old.

Join Mike and Chad as they deconstruct how Jeff does it.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos talks with The Verge's Walt Mossberg about the "gigantic" potential of artificial intelligence to change everything from shopping to self-driving cars.

Bezos also discusses his purchase of the Washington Post in 2013, which he says is transforming from a local to a global institution. He explains why he opposes both Peter Thiel's campaign against Gawker Media and Donald Trump's attempts to "freeze or chill" press scrutiny.

Plus: Why Bezos's other company, Blue Origin, is trying to lower the cost of entrepreneurship in space.
