I vote for all day podcasts

I could listen to you guys & gals all day. I would love a four hour verge cast!

The agony!

This was my go to tech podcast for a while, but now it's becoming a pain to listen to. Reason: Host/co-host laughs at the end of every single sentence "Finally the Apple pencil magnetically sticks to the new iPad mini 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂"🤷‍♂️(what's so funny?) 👀Where's the joke!?! 👂🏥

Keeps me sane

I love The Vergecast, been listening since the Engadget podcast days. If I had to pick only one show to listen to each week, it would be this. I really appreciate the range of topics covered and the intelligent conversation around text, culture, and increasingly policy.
