#236: New Year, New Gripes

January 3rd, 2020 · 95 minutes

Flo rang in the new year by boring her friends with a Google Photos slideshow, while Andy worked on curating the perfect media library. We discuss the year's first major Google news story: a politically-tinged blog post from the company's former Head of International Relations on how Google's policies have morphed over a decade. We'll also take a stroll through the Google Graveyard as of 2019, and YouTube creators finally have a tool to help protect them from content-match copyright claims.
