Telepath, a knock-off Amazon Echo Show, Apple's iPhone event.

A look at Telepath, which aims to be the kinder, gentler Twitter. An Amazon-Echo-Show-like smart display that doesn't spy on you. A review of Apple's October iPhone event.

First, Kaya Thomas discusses her recent Debugger article on Telepath, the social media network that provides a safer, more moderated experience for online interaction.

Then, OneZero's Dave Gershgorn stops by to talk about his recent project, a smart display that provides him weather updates, calendar alerts, and more — all without the privacy concerns of an Echo Show or Nest Home Hub.

Lastly, Dan Moren of Six Colors joins Mikah to review Apple's iPhone event. What's with all the iPhones? Is 5G everything it's cracked up to be? And what's the deal with that HomePod Mini?
