It's been a crazy week, friends. MTV let Miley Cyrus blow up her career in the VMAs, the IFA trade show in Berlin brought us a lot of deeply weird gadgets, and we know quite a lot more about what's coming at next week's Apple event. This is the part of the Vergecast introductory text where I convince you that these things are interrelated in an important way (and they are!), but let's save the explanation of why that's the case for the podcast. A podcast that will feature Emily Yoshida, Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, and Nicola Fumo. Just the right mix of cool and nerd — assigning those labels to the hosts is of course up to you (Hint: Dieter is the nerd).
We'll be live at our regular time today — 4:30PM ET / 1:30PM PT / 8:30PM GMT. 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.
One final note: be sure to listen to our brand new podcast, called Verge ESP, which blurs the lines between science and entertainment, as well as What's Tech?, which explains technology in layman's terms.
