It all strikes at 4:30 Eastern.
You can watch via the Livestream embed above. And if you miss the live show, you can always watch the replay (using the embed above) or download the audio version on iTunes. And speaking of iTunes, be sure to rate us five stars if you enjoyed the show. We'll do our best to make sure you do.
While you're waiting, you should listen to our newest podcast, called Verge ESP, which blurs the lines between science and entertainment. Or you could dive into the archives of What's Tech?, which has been explaining technology in layman's terms for almost six whole months already.
