      episode 287: 286: FCC kills net neutrality, the iMac Pro arrives, and T-Mobile buys Layer3 TV


      The Vergecast three-piece is back together, with Nilay leading the flagship podcast. The biggest news this week is something we’ve seen coming for a while: on Thursday, the FCC voted to repeal net neutrality rules. Nilay, Dieter, and Paul sit down to discuss the action and their viewpoints on what this means going forward for the internet.

      Also, the iMac Pro is now available to order and Dieter got to write about it. There’s quite a bit of talk about whether this computer is worth t...

      episode 285: 285: ARM powered PCs, Google vs Amazon, and Messenger Kids


      This week, Dieter Bohn runs the show with Paul Miller and Natt Garun, and it's been a wild week of news. Amazon and Google are basically feuding right now: Google is pulling YouTube from the FireTV so the podcast trio ponders what this frightening predicament means for the streaming and the open web. Also, Microsoft launched some ARM-powered Windows 10 PCs, so you bet these tech luminaries are going to talk about it.

      There’s lots more in between that, like Paul’s weekly segment (say ...

      episode 284: 284: HQ, selfie authentication, and solar panels turning air into water


      Let get this out of the way: Nilay and Dieter are not on the show this week.

      But really, we’ve got a great show hosted by Verge podcast professionals Lauren Goode and Casey Newton. Oh and Paul is still here, too!

      So what are we talking about on the show today? Well, a lot. Lauren, Casey, and Paul analyze the news that was at the top of the site this week, including a glitch that left American Airlines without pilots during the week of Christmas; a rundown of the new t...

      Net Neutrality 2017 Thanksgiving madness


      The FCC decided to bury the news about its plan to end the Net Neutrality rules in the middle of Thanksgiving week here in the US. But that won't stop Nilay, Paul, and Dieter from doing a Vergecast. 

      This was originally broadcasted live on YouTube on November 24th, 2017.

      episode 281: 281: iPhone X Review


      The iPhone X is finally here. Nilay had the chance to review it, so, along with Paul, Ashley, and Dan, he discusses what it’s like to use the phone in the real world as well as what the process of reviewing it was like.

      We also welcome Phil Esposito, The Verge’s lead video director, to the show for the first time to discuss the roller coaster that is working on the two videos we produced throughout the week.

      episode 279: 279: Pixel 2 review, KRACK, and Microsoft's Surface Book sequel


      The reviews are in and everybody just loves the quality OLED component Google picked for the Pixel 2 XL. Really just can't stop talking about it. And talking? That's what the Vergecast is for. On this episode Nilay, Paul, and Dieter discuss the reviews of Google's new phones, and The Verge's security expert Russell Brandom drops by to explain KRACK and four-way handshakes. It's all the grit and off-axis color shifting of a Pentile display, in podcast form.

      episode 278: 278: Oculus Go, Movies Anywhere, and Windows Phone died again


      We’ve got a bloggy Vergecast today. In between review weeks, a few things popped up in the news that Nilay, Dieter, and Paul needed to talk about. Google is integrating video chat into a phone but still not text; you can now watch all the movies you’ve purchased online in one place; Apple is on a “hype cycle” talking about AR; and Windows Phone died again.

      But that’s not all. There’s a whole lot in between that — like the segment Paul does every week, “You know Dan, the duck face is...
