The Pocketnow Weekly Podcast, Episode 007


A Romanian, a Honduran, and two Americans walk into a podcast … stop me if you’ve heard this one.

Actually, you haven’t. Because this is the first four-person episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast! This time around, usual suspects Michael, Brandon, and Anton are joined by the redoubtable Jaime Rivera, Multimedia Manager extraordinaire, for almost ninety minutes of mobile technology discussion from the very top layers of the heavenly clouds above.

That’s topped off by some overdue answers to a few bits of listener mail, questions from the smartest listeners in the business. If you can get through the bad James Bond jokes and Michael’s slightly-blown out audio levels during the first few minutes, there’s some great stuff to be had in episode 007 … including some Executive Roleplay. Yes, you read that right.

If that sounds like something you want to put your ears on -and it should- the various player links are below. Plug in, kick back, and treat your listening holes to some international intrigue with episode 007 of the Pocketnow Weekly. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com.
