Google Reader is on the outs, but RSS isn't dead — so what's next? And what does the future hold for Samsung's new flagship Galaxy S4?

Welcome to Top Shelf, a weekly show from The Verge that takes a deeper dive into the products and experiences of the technology that shapes our lives. Join David Pierce and a veritable gaggle of (mostly organic) friends as they showcase the best in consumer electronics, past, present, and future.

Coming up on today's show, our resident Google Reader aficionado Thomas Houston explains the impact of its loss and we talk to Feedly's Cyril Moutran about how the company's popular news reader plans to evolve. Then Evan Rodgers shows you how to make your phone feel more like stock Android. Finally, David sits down in studio with Avi Greengart from Current Analysis to get his take on Samsung — past, present, and future.

Top Shelf is also on iTunes now, too!

(P.S. — The Vergecast will air Friday afternoon!)
