Airing on Monday, March 9, 2015: First up, we'll talk to Kelly Jasper, Contributing Editor at the watch Magazine Hodinkee, talks about setting a price range for the Apple Watch. And when a Jennifer Aniston ad for Aveeno appears just before a jihadi training video on You Tube, Proctor and Gamble is not amused. On today's show, we explain how this could happen. For one, ads are automatically placed before videos, and advertisers can’t exert much control over this. And Ben speaks with Will Oremus, Senior Tech writer for Slate, about the new Googleplex.
