MacVoices #21054: Kirk McElhearn Provides Perspective on the Demise of the Apple HomePod (Part 2)

My conversation with Kirk McElhearn about the demise of the Apple HomePod takes an unusual turn as we compare and contrast how we listen to music, use our libraries, and our streaming services. Those choices can, to some degree, inform our decisions about the smart speakers we listen to our music on, and the services we use. (Part 2)
