You know how this whole website is called The Verge? You probably thought that meant something like the verge of the future, or the verge of something awesome. You were wrong. This edition of The Verge Mobile Podcast is on the verge of the past, as backward-looking as it is chock-full of information. It's our way of saying that history is doomed to repeat itself, and also our version of trying to get you to eat your vegetables by hiding them under layers of Velveeta and ranch dressing.
