At Pocketnow, we think we’ve assembled one of the best teams in mobile tech reporting. But mobile is a huge space to cover, and the list of outlets covering it is equally massive. Making up that techno-blogosphere is a long list of personalities – some eccentric, some conventional, but all interesting.
With the Pocketnow VIP (based on the popular Pocketnow Live), we aim to get to know some of these outstanding personalities – where they’re at, where they’re going, and what circumstances conspired to make them the people they are today. Because in a nuts-and-bolts world like technology, it’s important to take a step back every now and then to consider the flesh-bags that bring the news to you. Especially the outstanding ones.
In the first episode of the Pocketnow VIP, we were joined by Jon Rettinger of TechnoBuffalo. We followed that up with an episode learning about Phil Nickinson of AndroidCentral. For numbers three and four, we hung out with Marques Brownlee of MKBHD and Mark Watson of SoldierKnowsBest, and we followed those with a sit-down with the Angel of Tech herself, Erica Griffin. This time around, our studio guest is none other than Austin (not Duncan) Evans!
Format and airdate
We’re not trying to fix what ain’t busted, so we’ll be following our standard VIP format for our latest episode. We’ll sit down with our guest in a public (but closed) live Google Hangout. This means you’ll be able to watch and comment during the broadcast, but due to the one-on-one nature of the VIP, you won’t be able to join the room to interact.
Episode 6 will air Friday, February 21, at 2pm ET/11am PT (click here for your own timezone). We’ll talk all things mobile -and much more- with our VIP guest, a familiar face for those who value “PC builds, tech reviews, Top 5s, and more,” Austin Evans. So mark your calendars and prepare for a solid hour of getting to know one of YouTube’s favorite tech hosts!
If you have questions for Austin, we’d love to include them. We’ll be running a live Q-and-A on Friday’s Hangout, but if you want to get your question in early, shoot it to the inbox normally reserved for the Weekly: podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Please keep ‘em brief, folks.
See you Friday!
