This week on The Vergecast, Dieter is on vacation, so Silicon Valley editor and host of an upcoming Verge podcast, Casey Newton, joins us. Nilay, Paul, and Casey run through the news of the week, including Samsung Galaxy S9 leaks, Twitter bots, and third-party keyboards.
Also, as a preview of Casey’s upcoming podcast Converge with Casey Newton, Casey takes over as the host of The Vergecast for a segment to beta test a new game for his podcast with Nilay and Paul as contestants.
We’ve got a whole lot more in between that — like Paul’s segment he does every week “Warm robot hugs” — so listen to it all, and you’ll get it all.
