Every Friday, The Verge publishes our flagship podcast The Vergecast, our chat show to discuss this week in tech news featuring our reporters and editors.

Here’s what the show covered on this episode:

Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel talks with Adi Robertson and Casey Newton about Australia’s News Media Bargaining Code, the country’s new regulation for news media on the internet. Casey and Adi explain the deal Google is making with Australia, why Facebook walked away, and what’s at stake for the open web.

On the second half of the show, Verge editor Chris Welch and reporter Julia Alexander return to discuss with Nilay the state of TV and streaming — there’s a new Amazon Fire TV stick, you can play Apple TV on the latest Google Chromecast now, and streaming services are amping up their content.

Last but not least, Verge writer Taylor Lyles and I (in our debut Vergecast appearances) discuss our favorite announcements from this week’s Nintendo Direct.
