  1. It would be awesome if you guys can add these podcasts to Google Play Music.

    1. Play Music has podcasts, and ADB is there already. There was an issue we fixed a couple of weeks ago where it only had the last 25 episodes in the feed, but you should now be able to get to all of the episodes.

  2. Awesome episode, guys, thanks! The small note: the reified type parameters supported only for inline functions, so compiler don't add any additional meta data to the runtime.

  4. Towards the end of the podcast static analysis tools are mentioned. What Kotlin static analysis tools does Google use (eg detekt, ktlint)?

    Does Google have its own Kotlin style guide?
