Android Central Podcast
The Android Central Podcast, brought to you by AndroidCentral.com.

When you think of love, relationships and marriage, you think of the Android Central Podcast. No? Fine. But we do our best this week to solve a frustrated listener's issue. (And you can ask your own relationship questions at podcast@androidcentral.com, of course!) Plus we take on SwiftKey's sale to Microsoft, the major Android Wear update, and answer more non-marital questions live on air!

On this very special episode of the Android Central Podcast we take a look at what it means to apply themes to your phone — and whether you'd want to do that in the first place. (Hint: Old Man Phil likes it old school.)

Plus, Phil takes a look at a couple newish travel tricks on a recent trip, and we answer your questions live on air.

We're joined by Google Developer Expert Mike Wolfson — who's also been working on the Android Central App — to talk about the Ubiquity Dev Summit, Brillo, Weave, the Internet of Things, and what any of that actually means.

We're coming at you live from beautiful Las Vegas Nevada for CES 2016. And because this is such a big show we're doing a joint podcast with our pals from Windows Central, and there's a little BlackBerry news tossed in for good measure. 

And as this is a live, on the road and very late at night, it's a little rougher than most of our shows. We prefer to call that "flavor," if you will. 

And click here for all our news from CES 2016!

We're sneaking in one final podcast before the end of the year, and before we head to Las Vegas for CES. That means it's time to announce your Readers' Choice awards for 2015 — the best of the best as decided by you fine folks! 

(Oh, and we just might talk Star Wars a little bit.)

Thanks for a great 2015, everyone. See ya'll in the new year.

Our first Android History Project podcast (you can listen to it here) was such a hit, we decided to do another. And instead of listening to us gab for an hour we wrangled three top Android developers and have the honor of hearing their history of Android.

Huge thanks to Koushik Dutta (Vysor, ClockworkMod), Chris Lacy (Action Launcher) and Joe Braidwood (SwiftKey) for taking a few minutes out of their day to chat with us.
