A fuller write up of getting the Raspberry Pi with VoiceHat to play streaming radio and podcasts

Raspberry Pi 3 with VoiceHat streaming live radio using Google AIY.

This is the kit (excluding R2D2) that was given away on the cover of Issue 57 of +The MagPi magazine

Raspberry Pi 3 with Google AIY playing streaming radio stations.
Since doing this vdeo I've expanded the number of stations it supports.

As an example
'Absolute 80s' is interpreted by Google as 'Absolute 80s'
while
'Absolute 00s' is interpreted as interpreted as 'Absolute noughties'

If you have a monitor attached or ssh into the Pi you can see what the keywords are by running the command

sudo journalctl -u voice-recognizer -n 20 -f

I got this command from the official Google site - https://aiyprojects.withgoogle.com/voice/#makers-guide-5-appendix
I just changed he number of lines to 20 so I could see more.

New to this. Have Raspberry Pi kit functioning.
Want to be able to play podcasts using it.
It says playing but nothing happens.
Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

In case it's important I'm in the UK.

I know we don't get free music streaming from Google Music.

Raspberry Pi 3 with Google AIY from The MagPi 57 in R2D2

Bought a booked with a. cardboard R2D2 and when I got the Google AIY with The MagPi Issue 57 I wondered if it would fit inside.

It does.

A like making physical games where the play has to interact with more than a gamepad.
This game involves throwing balls into cups. Imagine beer pong, without the beer and with a Raspberry Pi.

Side Note: This is running from a Raspberry Pi Zero W using an SPI MCP3008 ADC and programmed with Python/Pygame using the gpiozero library.
Also, Pi Zero W with Bluetooth was great as works with the NexDock
