Some of you may have been wondering, where'd Vergecast go these past two weeks? No live video on Thursday? Why audio only?
Well, we want to make Vergecast the best it can be, so we decided to retire the live aspect of our show to focus more on produced segments, interviews, and fun stuff. But don't worry, you can still be involved. Tell us in the comments what you want to hear on the show, who you'd like us to interview, or even where you want the show to take place.
And so without further ado — Vergecast is back! But something is different… Dieter moved to San Francisco and Nilay is still in New York City. How can they make it work? This is the future and we can chat in cyberspace, that's how! This week, we also patched in Paul Miller and Lauren Goode for a special State of Tech discussion.
Wait! There's more! Nilay interviews Kara Swisher, executive editor of Recode, to talk about what's to come with this year's mammoth guest lineup at the Code Conference.
25:55 – Paul’s gadget of the week
31:12 – Nilay and Dieter’s car trouble
41:31 – Interview with Kara Swisher
52:23 – Lightning round
Oh yeah, we have a whole network of podcasts. You can find them all in iTunes and now Spotify! They include the all-new Ctrl-Walt-Delete podcast with Walt Mossberg and Nilay Patel, which dives deep into tech; Verge ESP with Emily Yoshida and Liz Lopatto, which blurs the lines between science and entertainment; and What's Tech? with Christopher Thomas Plante, which explains technology in layman's terms.
