Welcome to episode 10 of the Neowin Podcast, the show where Rich Woods and João Carrasqueira talk about all the big news from the past week.
This week, Microsoft and Netflix celebrated a partnership related to the third season of Stranger Things, including a pretty cool Xbox One X giveaway and a collectible miniature arcade cabinet. Microsoft also surprised us with a new 19H2 build for Xbox Insiders that actually increases the major build number, even though we had assumed that it would stay the same for all editions of Windows 10. Also on this week's episode, João rants for about 30 minutes about the new Nintendo Switch Lite, so make sure to be prepared for that.
