123: Google Stadia, Zuck Wants Regulated Internet

We catch up with Google’s Stadia announcement where it seeks to supersede the way you play and consume games without the need for hardware. Is this real? While Zuckerberg writes another op-ed asking for help and specifically tighter regulation of the internet. This could be the start of something big and the web as we know it. There are also some April Fools’ gags and Elon Musk’s foray into being a rap artist and at the same time resurrecting a 3-year old meme. R.I.P. Harambe. Just a small sample of a wild episode 123.
