The European Union wants big tech companies to play nice with the competition. They don’t think Google’s doing that. So the EU hit Google with a 1.5 billion-euro fine.

Also on today’s episode: we spotlight New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern, and it’s finally time to put your sweaters away. PS: Want to tell us about your Woman of the Week?
