It's the Border Run edition of the Engadget Podcast: no, Tim isn't sneaking over the US - Canada fence, seeking a better life for his children up north and being hunted by self-appointed Royal Canadian Mounted Border Protection agents. He's just trying to get his paws on the hottest new gaming gear; meanwhile Brian and recently-returned-from-the-wilderness Engadgeteer Barb Dybwad are making a run for the gates of London to get their paws on the hottest new Black Eyed Peas / Zeiss-branded Otterbox. Allow us to explain, won't you, by clicking that play button.

Hosts: Tim Stevens, Brian Heater
Guest: Barb Dybwad
Producer: Trent Wolbe
Music: Orbital - Never
