In Tim Cook's first 16 months as Apple's CEO, he has had little to say to the media outside of product announcements — that is, until this week. In recent interviews with Bloomberg Businessweek and NBC's Rock Center, Tim Cook speaks out about his role as CEO, the legacy of Steve Jobs, Apple's interest in the television market, and the return of Apple manufacturing to the United States.

On this week's Vergecast, Josh, Nilay, and Paul read between the lines of these recent interviews and discuss the current state and future direction of Apple under Tim Cook.
