"Off The Verge" episode #000

Welcome to the pilot episode of "Off The Verge", a Verge forums community podcast. I've had the idea of starting a Verge Forums show for a few years now: imagine a seedy back alley pub for regular commenters to debate news of the day. The cancelation/hiatus/"lacuna" of The Vergecast and The Verge Mobile Show have spurred me into action.

Whether I can put my questionable co-hosting skills to use, or remain a bystander, I look forward to seeing a regular Verge community show.
