Don't forget - the Android Police Podcast's live broadcast is every Thursday at 5PM PST (www.androidpolice.com/podcast).

Eric Ravenscraft
Eric is a snarky technophile with a taste for the unusual. When he's not obsessing about Android, you can usually find him obsessing about movies, psychology, or the perfect energy drink. Eric weaves his own special blend of snark, satire, and comedy into all his articles.

      This is last Friday's show. We are back to the normal recording schedule and will be live tonight at 8pm EST. :)

    Shouldn't it be Buckethead?

  • Ivan Petkovic

    This is episode from last week. It figures it took them this long to edit. I wonder what they did with flying pijama's...

      In addition to Bob's reply above (below?), this post is late, but the episode was edited and always available via the channels Bob mentioned. I usually write the post, but my computer kicked the bucket over the weekend so I had to rebuild it from scratch. That was my problem. Bob is never late with an edit.

        Guys, guys, twas a joke, chill. It was a wild episode :)
        I need no RSS to tell me when your show is, since it's the only TV-like thing I watch (well, almost) - I'm a big and true fan of your podcast. G+ reminders when you delay are more than enough (or Twitter). And I would love to be in chatroom while show is on, but it's 6AM here (or 5AM?), and I have a job, and it's not possible at all. That's why I always catch your unedited episodes on Youtube couple of hours later, and usually laugh my ass off (while at work, risking the job I mentioned), like last week.
        You (all of you) do an excellent job, don't change a thing - unless you decide it's more fun to do it differently, ofc.

          Oh, no worries. I just like to make sure Bob gets the credit he's due. He's more dedicated than any of us. I want to be clear that any problems are *all* on me. Haha

    Ivan, the editing was done at about midnight the same night it was recorded (last Friday). Be sure to subscribe to the feed in iTunes or your favorite podcast aggregator to get the latest episodes delivered to your device (they are always posted within a few hours after the show is recorded). Usually one of the AP writers then puts this post together for the site the next day, but it may have been overlooked since it happened over the weekend. Sorry :( Also, Michael, Buckhead was a joke from Cameron trying to say Buckethead. Listen to the end of the show after the outro for the soundbyte. Also, be sure to check out the show live tonight at 8pm EST from the podcast section of this site. We would love to have you participate in the chat!
