In the event of a cataclysmic disaster, please place your headphones firmly on or within each ear. Next, find a location free of lasers, asteroids, or tentacles, and stand, sit, or lie in that location. Finally, remove the handheld computer of your preference from your pants or, in the event of an apocalypse, your utilikilt, and open up your favorite podcast app. This is where you'll find us. The rally point will be given during the course of the show using an easy-to-recognize passphrase. See you on the other side.

The Vergecast is a discussion of all things relevant and irreverent in the worlds of art, culture, science, and technology. Broadcasts begin at 4:00PM ET (and your timezone of choice) every Thursday. Missed last week's episode? We talked about the Twitter IPO, Everpix, and the new iPads.
