Season 2, Ep. 51

This week, we've got all the latest details on the big announcements from the world of video calling. That includes Zoom's new software update, Google Meet turning into a free service, and how others are trying to keep in the game.


Stuart also talks to anthropologist Genevieve Bell, a distinguished professor at the Australian National University and vice president of Intel, about how we're changing the way we interact with tech. She also explains what coming out of lockdown means and how we could use contact tracing to make that a reality.


And finally, our associate editor of Pocket-lint, Cam, reviews the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone. It's just been announced, so we've been going through the steps to get it into the air and find out whether it's worth your cash.
