Pocketnow VIP

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. And for the third installment of the series, we’re interviewing the man behind one of the fastest-growing tech channels on YouTube: Marques Brownlee of MKBHD.

Format and airdate

Consistency being the mother of awesome (or something), 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 live broadcast, but due to the one-on-one nature of the VIP, you won’t be able to join the room to interact.

Episode 3 will air Friday, October 25, at 12pm ET/9am PT (click here for your own timezone). We’ll talk all things mobile -and much more- with our awesome VIP guest, a familiar face voice from last week’s Pocketnow Weekly podcast: YouTube personality and video producer Marques Brownlee, the man behind MKBHD! So mark your calendars and prepare to settle in for a solid hour of getting to know one of the hottest names in mobile tech!

If you have questions for Marques, we’d love to include them. We may fire up the on-air mailbox during Friday’s Hangout, but if you want to get your question in early, shoot it over to the inbox normally reserved for the Weekly: podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Please keep ’em brief, folks.

See you Friday!
