Welcome to the Android Police Podcast, Episode 67.

I'd like to apologize in advance for a few technical snafus and various awkward transitions you may notice in this week's show, as much of the Eastern US was experiencing severe storms yesterday, causing problems with the YouTube / Hangouts On Air backend.

Don't forget - the Android Police Podcast's live broadcast is every Thursday at 5PM PST (www.androidpolice.com/podcast). You can also check out our calendar, below, for detailed scheduling information. The unedited video version is here.

We'd like to specially thank Pam Hill for joining us on this week's show, and we plan to have even more listener guests on the podcast in the near future (don't worry, we got your emails! You'll be hearing from us if we decide to bring you on). For details on how to express your interest in being a guest on the show, look for the details under the various embedded items below.
