Facebook. Apple. Amazon. Netflix. Google. These five tech giants have changed the world. But how? And at what cost? Google’s dominance in everything from search and online advertising to YouTube and Android gives it tremendous power and responsibility.
Land of the Giants, Vox Media Podcast Network and Recode’s award winning narrative franchise, has launched its third season, The Google Empire, hosted by Recode’s senior reporter Shirin Ghaffary and Alex Kantrowitz, founder of Big Technology. The new season tells the inside story of the company’s great innovations, its battles with fellow tech giants, and how it’s grappling with organizing the world’s information.
The seven-episode series will explore how Google—a company that began with idealistic goals of creative experimentation and making useful products—has evolved into a worldwide power with an enormous impact on the way we live. It’s dominance in search engines and online advertising as well as its platforms—YouTube and Android—give it tremendous power and responsibility.
The first episode of the show was published last week on the 16th February and will continue weekly every Tuesday. Tune in on Apple Podcasts.
Season three of Land of the Giants is sponsored by Yext.
