#193: Generational Differences

March 8th, 2019 · 70 minutes

This week's podcast deals with some very mature themes, so take heed.

There's a ton of nostalgia in this week's episode, from Andy and Flo discussing how their online lives differed when they were tykes, to how they each hold on to a lifetime of media files with the help of their respective Plex servers.

After the first break, gear up for a serious discussion about YouTube's content problem, what the company is doing to combat predatory commenters, and why we should be louder about our discontent over the platform's failure to properly curate child-friendly content. Then, we'll end on a discussion about some of the latest Google headlines.
