Flo is on a journey to recreate the operating system of her youth, and Andy encourages it. We discuss the launch of Android 11, like your friends who are just having a beer and sharing some stats. We bum you out with the sinking realization that everything is still wrong in the world (it's why Google Maps automatically blurred out protest slogans in Hong Kong). And then, we lift your spirits with a reflective interview with Google's former camera czar, Marc Levoy.
