This week on The Vergecast, Nilay, Paul, Russell, and Dieter dedicate half the show to The Verge’s monopoly week, which dives into the future of tech monopolies. They also discuss the social media hearings that happened on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
In the second half of the show, the crew updates us on what to expect for next week’s Apple event, from the mysterious third phone to the updated AirPods rumors.
There’s a whole lot in between that — like a whole section dedicated to Roombas — so listen to it all, and you’ll get it all.
26:13 - “This week in Elon Musk” with Sean O’Kane
45:16 - Paul’s weekly segment “The decline of dirt”
We’re also doing a separate interview show in The Vergecast feed each week, so listen to the interview with Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith if you haven’t already.
