BSP-096: YouTube Adpocalypse 2.0

On episode 96 of the BSP, I talk about a mistake I made regarding the Net Neutrality vote, as well as my last podcast with the RE-20. In the news, I let you know about a new X-Files game that’s coming, Microsoft Office being available on all chrome books, Youtube fixing an iOS bug, the new YouTube Community Feature, Youtube rolling out competition for Snapchat & Instagram stories, the Adpocalypse 2.0, and Youtube deleting 150,000 videos.

I also talk about apple screwing up big time in terms of your computers security if you’re running High Sierra, a proposed bill that could put executives in jail for covering up data breaches, and the Department of Homeland Security stating that DJI drones are being used to spy for the Chinese Government. 

In TV & Movies of the week, I let you know that the awesome netflix series “MindHunter” has been renewed for a second season, and share that Hater’s Back Off was cancelled. Finally in the ask bandrew segment I talk about my 2nd favorite dynamic mic, the best condenser for podcasting, conspiracy theories, and the M99.
