Join the Engadget HD Podcast live on Ustream at 5:30 pm

It's Monday, and we know that getting the week started can be tough. We're here to help by letting you peek into the recording booth when the Engadget HD podcast goes to mp3 at 5:30 pm. We have a special guest this week, Chris Ziegler, who is going to convince you that the frequencies that are giving you cancer would be better used on unicast, instead of the wasteful broadcast that clogs up the works today. Embedded Ustream tools and a list of topics after the break.
