I like the content. Quality tech gadgets reviews, insightful philosophical discussion around our digital habits, quirky digressions on geeky details, etc. My main criticism is that the host Nilay’s diction is poor for radio. He mumbles with decreasing volume at the end of his sentences which makes it really hard for me to understand, especially listening in the car.

Usually I start these posts by apologizing, but ya know... by now I think you know what you’ve gotten yourself into — unless this is your first episode. So great! Hey! We’ve got a great show for you! (This is a podcast.) Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, Ross Miller, and Paul Miller (no relation) compiled a list of things from our cherished website TheVerge.com and dug a little deeper, with different angles, viewpoints, and behind-the-scenes journalistic insight.

We’ve got more time with the Nintendo Switch than we did last week (even a taste test), a roundup of MWC announcements from over the weekend, and tons of little stories. I’m sure there’s a bunch of stuff you missed because of the Amazon web server disruption since those four hours were the only time you get your news.

How America gave up on free markets with Thomas Philippon

Podcast cover
Read more

On this week’s Vergecast interview, Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel talks to finance professor and an economist at the NYU stern school of business Thomas Philippon. Thomas just wrote a book called The Great Reversal: How America Gave Up on Free Markets all about competition and consolidation in different markets.

When Thomas moved to the United States from France in the 90s, he noticed everything from laptops to internet access was cheaper in America, but over time has gotten more and more expensive. In the interview Nilay and Thomas discuss why that is — unsurprisingly the answer is consolidation in a lot of our markets.

Thomas makes a point that in some places, concentrations are actually good and creates value for the consumers, but in some markets like healthcare, technology, and airtravel, that consolidation has resulted in way higher prices for Americans. Since the prices go up slowly, we don’t actually notice.

If you have been listening to The Vergecast and been paying attention to our big conversations about whether or not we should be breaking up big tech companies, whether we should regulate them, or whether tech companies with network effects like Google and Facebook are different than companies like AT&T and GE, this conversation is up your alley. Below is lightly edited except of the conversation.

What happened in the comments section of the FCC's net neutrality hearing?

Podcast cover
Read more

This week on The Vergecast, Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel talks with Jeremy Singer-Vine, the data editor for the BuzzFeed News investigative unit, about his story that was published recently regarding the fake comments on the Federal Communications Commission’s online net neutrality debate.

If you haven’t read the piece, you should. The investigation details where all of the fake comments in the FCC’s net neutrality process came from, including dead people leaving comments and shady political operatives involved in the scam.

It’s not really a story about net neutrality; rather, it’s about how systems designed for public participation in the government are so easily scammed, and what the challenges are for preventing such scams from happening.

Nilay and Jeremy discuss why it happened, how it happened, and what happens next if we want to use the internet to encourage open access participation in government without corruption.
