Update: Sorry folks! Due to circumstances beyond our control, we need to reschedule this special appearance. Pocketnow Weekly 083 will go under the mic on Thursday as scheduled, but Evan won’t be able to join us. We’ll still be announcing our Nexus 5 giveaway winner though, so be sure to tune in!
When we started the Pocketnow Weekly podcast back in July of 2012, it bore little resemblance to its current incarnation. There was no handy list of time codes; the music was built on an aggressive electric-guitar riff that now sounds impossibly cheesy; and subtopics like the “thought thread” and “two-minute debate segment” divided the podcast into rigidly regimented sectors of tech talk. Most importantly, the Weekly back then was headed up by a strictly defined team of Brandon Miniman, Anton D. Nagy, and myself. There were rarely guest hosts, and when there were, they came from Pocketnow’s own ranks.
Of all the changes that have molded the show since then, perhaps none has made a more lasting impact on the quality of our discussions than the shift in our guest policy. From Marques Brownlee of MKBHD to Brad Molen of Engadget to Ryan Negri of Negri Electronics and beyond, the people who’ve devoted their time to guesting on the Pocketnow Weekly have given us the best gift an editorial team could ask for: fresh perspective.
And now it’s time to broaden that perspective by welcoming a guest who needs no introduction. For those who follow tech, his brand is synonymous with the hottest mobile technology the world has to offer – put on display before its makers want you to see it. Joining us for episode 083 of our podcast is the world’s most prolific tech leaker, Evan Blass of @evleaks! Please tune in on Thursday, February 13, as Evan joins us for episode 083 of the Pocketnow Weekly. We’ll be discussing what it’s like to be the technology world’s largest resource for “tomorrow’s news, yesterday,” and we’ll ask Evan just how he snags the scoops he does – and how he stays out of jail while doing it. What’s more, we’ll be putting your questions to Evan if you’ve got ‘em: submit to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com, or tweet us at @Pocketnow during the recording session itself -starting noon on Thursday- and you could hear your question read on the air! (The audio-only podcast doesn’t broadcast live, but the recorded show will air in the evening on the same day.)
And don’t forget: we’ll be announcing the winner of our Nexus 5 giveaway on the very same episode, so this is bound to be a packed show.
Never heard of the Pocketnow Weekly? Not to worry: last week’s podcast is embedded below for your listening pleasure.
See you Thursday!
