There are two massive issues we have to discuss at the moment: Google’s new devices and Mark Zuckerberg’s remarks on free speech.

So this week on The Vergecast, hosts Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, and Paul Miller undergo all of the merchandise Google introduced at its {hardware} occasion on Tuesday, then invite senior reporter Adi Robertson and Silicon Valley editor Casey Newton on to debate Zuckerberg’s speech at Georgetown University on Thursday.

In the primary half of the present, the crew talk about what we noticed Google announce this week: the Pixel 4, the Nest Mini, the Nest Wifi, the Pixelbook Go, and the brand new Pixel Buds. After attending the occasion and interviewing Google’s {hardware} chief, Rick Osterloh, earlier this week, at the moment’s episode turns to how the Pixel 4 matches into the broader “flagship phone” group and how its digicam stands as much as the iPhone.

In the second half of the present, Casey Newton and Adi Robertson take part to investigate what Mark Zuckerberg was making an attempt to say about free speech with reference to Facebook and political promoting. How massive of a task will Facebook have within the 2020 election? Should Facebook simply ban all political adverts?

There’s a complete lot extra in between all of that — like Paul’s weekly phase “The crime, teens, is flavor” — so hear by to get all of it.
