Sometimes you get listener mail that asks how the band got together in the first place. Sometimes that happens the day after you drop some nostalgic sentimentalism all over the internet. Sometimes, simultaneously, there are some sweet, juicy rumors and leaks about a top-of-the-line camera phone with what looks like a moon crater on it.

Sometimes you gotta put all that into a podcast with the original cadre of Pocketnow ‘casters, and see what comes out.

All that, plus the longest outtake reel in the history of Pocketnow, more Nokia EOS rumors than you can shake a stick at, the first-ever mention of Sir Thomas Crapper on a tech podcast (probably), and a look into how our most sentimental webOS unboxing came to be, after the break. We’ve fired up Luna and spread the cards on the desktop; this week’s installation of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is about ready to be stacked onto your listening queue. Send feedback, questions, and requests to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com. Follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Google Plus to stay apprised of the latest episodes. Thanks for listening!
