This week in The Vergecast, Dieter is on vacation, so the Silicon Valley editor and host of an upcoming Verge podcast, Casey Newton, joins us. Nilay, Paul and Casey reviewed the news of the week, including the leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S9, Twitter bots and third-party keyboards.
In addition, as a preview of Casey's next podcast, Converge with Casey Newton, Casey takes the place as host of The Vergecast for a segment to try a new game for his podcast with Nilay and Paul as contestants.
