This week, Cherlynn and Devindra speak with senior editor Jessica Conditt about Sony’s surprising $3.6 billion acquisition of Bungie. It’s too early to be a direct response to the Microsoft/Activision deal, but clearly Sony sees the need for fresh blood. Additionally, they delve into Spotify’s poor response to the protests surrounding Joe Rogan’s podcast. Should Spotify be using a stronger editorial hand? And yes, they discuss the entire New York Times/Worle takeover as well.
