This week on The Vergecast, Nilay, Paul, and Dieter are joined by Verge science reporter Rachel Becker to discuss what’s going on in the world of Juul — why it’s so popular, how addictive it is, and where it’s being restricted.
Also, Qualcomm had a conference in Hawaii this week, so the crew goes through the announcements, including the Snapdragon 855 processor and its support for 5G networks.
There’s a whole lot in between that — like Microsoft abandoning its Chrome competitor strategy, the latest with SpaceX, and RCS Chat coming to one phone — so listen to the whole episode to get everything you need.
