Android Central Podcast (general)
The Android podcast for everyone. A weekly show about Android, Google, and the best of mobile technology.

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. Plus we postmortem CES and answer more of your questions live. Don't miss it!

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!
