There’s a lot of fascinating developer news this week! @saronyitbarek and I are here to break it down 👇

In this episode, you’ll hear about...

  • The Facebook Oversight Board’s decisions about the (formerly) indefinite ban on Donald Trump’s account
  • The European Union ruling that Apple has an unfair advantage when it comes to the distribution of music streaming apps
  • The departure of many Basecamp employees following problematic statements made by the company’s co-founders

We also chatted with Jason Schreier, reporter at Bloomberg and the author of “Blood, Sweat, and Pixels” and now “Press Reset: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry” — coming out next week! Our conversation centered around video game studio instability (something we definitely enjoy talking about frequently on the show).

Thanks for listening!
