Amazon announced a long list of new Echo and Alexa products and initiatives this week — from smart glasses to wireless earbuds to a new neighborhood wireless initiative —  extending the reach of its devices and services well beyond the home, while attempting to address consumer concerns about privacy at the same time.

We talk about almost all of those devices on this episode of the GeekWire Podcast, as well as the new privacy initiatives from the company. Joining me for the discussion are GeekWire managing editor Taylor Soper and photographer Kevin Lisota, who covered the event with me earlier this week at Amazon headquarters in Seattle. While Kevin was impressed with the array of products, he brings an interesting perspective as someone who as decided not to keep an Echo device or other smart speaker in his home because of privacy concerns.

Here is our four-minute video recap of the event.
