Host Molly Wood spoke with Taylor Lorenz, a tech and internet culture reporter at the New York Times, about the sponsored memes Democratic presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg is paying for. Lorenz says that because Bloomberg doesn’t resonate with young voters — like Sanders and Trump — he has to pay social media influencers to advertise his campaign through memes in forms of videos or still images. All of this is allowed, according to Facebook, so long as it’s known to social media users that it’s paid content.

Host Molly Wood spoke with Sasan Goodarzi, CEO of Intuit — the parent company of TurboTax — about the company’s recent $7.1 billion acquisition of Credit Karma, its biggest since 1983. The reason for this acquisition, Goodarzi says, is to advance its mission to help families with their savings, while also helping its customers about their financial literacy, like how to keep or improve a great credit score. Since many services on Credit Karma are free, and many on TurboTax are not, Molly asked how the acquisition might change things up for Credit Karma.

They discuss Amazon’s recent court win that’s halted the Pentagon’s JEDI cloud project in partnership with Microsoft.
