Android Central Podcast (general)
Your weekly destination for the best of Android, Google and how mobile tech shapes the world!

It's a milestone podcast! Well, insofar as it's one more since last week. We've got CrackBerry.com editor-in-chief Chris Parsons with us to talk the latest on the BlackBerry Venice leaks. Plus we dive deep into Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the new Android Wear update, what's wrong with the Galaxy Note 5 (ZOMG!) — and we answer more of your questions live!

We're back from the Samsung events in New York and London, so we'll wrap up everything Galaxy Note 5 and GS6 edge+. And Samsung Pay. And that weird keyboard thing. Plus we've got the OnePlus 2 in our hot little hands, we'll check in on the latest with the Stagefright saga, and we answer more of your questions live!

How much can we cram into one 60-minute podcast? How about some serious Android security scares — we'll tell you exactly how much you need to worry about this Stagefright thing. And how about our first look at the new OnePlus 2 — spoiler: You'll have to settle a little. And we've got our hands on the new Moto G, and we've taken a look at the Moto X Style (Pure Edition) — it's big!

Plus we answer a whole bunch of your questions live without a net! You don't want to miss this one, folks.

Thanks to this week's sponsors!

The time has arrived. Or, rather, it'll arrive May 28-29. In San Francisco. For that is when the 2015 edition of the Google I/O developer conference is upon us. Or, rather, we're upon it. And so in this week's podcast we preview the things that shall come in the week hence. Or the things we think we'll see. Maybe. Hopefully.

If you at all care about Google and Chrome and Android and the Internet of Stuff/Things/Whatever, you don't want to skip this podcast.

And be sure to check out all our Google I/O coverage here!

It's Thanksgiving week for us here in the U.S., so we're doing things a tad different. Phil sits down (or stands up, really) with iMore.com editor-in-chief Rene Ritchie to chat up where we stand with anything and everything iOS and Android. 

Hope everyone had a good holiday, and we'll be back with our regular show on Dec. 5
