Flo joins the chat with Ron Richards, Mishaal Rahman, and Huyen Tue Dao to breakdown the latest from Google coming out of the Pixel 8 event and all the surprises, drama, Artificial Intelligence drinking game and underrated announcements that goes along with it. So much so that Huyen gets a little salty...watch out!
