The last five days were, in a word, bedlam. Newsweek may or may not have found the man who created Bitcoin (which subsequently led to a car chase -- yes, seriously); the head of PlayStation US, Jack Tretton, stepped down after just shy of 20 years; and Apple's finally got an official service for bridging iOS to cars: you'll never guess what it's called (okay, you probably will).

With co-hosts Terrence O'Brien and Joseph Volpe scattered across Austin for SXSW 2014, we're playing "who are these new people?" with two new staffers -- Chris Velazco and John Colucci. All that and more, live at noon ET, just below!

On this week's episode of the Engadget Podcast, Terrence sits alone in a closet studio piled high with ancient gadgets that no one will ever use again. Palm Pres, Kins and Zunes appear to be his only friends -- Joseph and Ben have "more important things to do." But, when all hope seemed lost, two valiant riders came rushing to his rescue. Brad Molen decided to fight through his MWC hangover to join our intrepid host, and the always soothing Richard Lawler will be rounding out this week's trio as they tackle the big news of the week (and probably talk some smack about those other hosts).

It all happens at 12PM ET, right after the break.

Nokia also has a new lineup, this time Android-based, and Sony's offerings are delivering enhanced imaging and higher resolutions. We saved you a seat at the table -- right next to the silent superstar -- so please join us for this special MWC 2014 edition of the Engadget Mobile Podcast.

With a couple big mobile news items dropping this week, it's no surprise that Brad makes a beeline for those topics, and he enlists Engadget newcomers Chris Velazco and Emily Price to join him. With Lenovo's recent acquisition of Motorola's handset division and Google's renewed bipartisanship with Samsung, there's certainly a lot to discuss. Along with the regular mobile fare, we treat you to one car chase, more Ashton Kutcher than you'd probably like and a tale of rare, yet spam-inducing social monikers. Please join us at the streaming links below for episode 199 of the Engadget Mobile Podcast.

We've got a couple brand new editors to throw to the podcast wolves: Emily Price and Chris Velazco, both of whom have certainly seen their share of the wireless industry over the past few years. We'll be doing a live Hangout on Google+ and YouTube, and you'll be able to tune in below the break as well. The main topic of discussion, as you might expect, will be Lenovo's purchase of Motorola; we're also planning to tell you a little bit about the new podcast format we'll be trying out in the coming weeks. Lots to be excited about, so join us at 2PM!

Brad and his team of mobile-centric pals sit down for some deep talk about feelings and, of course, smartphones. Sony has launched its Xperia Z1 Compact, which scales down size but not specs, and its compatriot, the Z1S, which takes the standard Z1 into waterproof territory. Not to be outdone, Samsung delivers some new tweaks on the Galaxy series, with its Note Pro and 12.2-inch Tab Pro. It's definitely a fun atmosphere on stage, but this is one party that T-Mobile's John Legere failed to crash -- although his hijinks did get a mention. Hop on down to the streaming links below for the full Mobile Podcast show!

It's been a hot second, but we're back with your host Brad Molen and guest Myriam Joire for a year-in-review episode. It's been a wild ride with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 picking up the processing pace, Motorola joining the smartphone market with renewed vigor and John Legere's refusal to let crazy get in the way of good ideas. Those on a budget could get quality in more ways than one and if the sky was the limit, you could get that too. And yes, Moto G received a KitKat update, but we didn't notice since it arrived while we were busy recording this amazing podcast just for you! So, if everyone's in, the Engadget Mobile Podcast is about to begin -- whenever you're ready, of course.

It's a tale of two phones this week, along with their respective OSes, of course. Your host Brad Molen is joined by TechnoBuffalo's Jon Rettinger to dig deep into Nokia's 1520 and the Windows Phone OS. There's also an in-depth look at what makes Google's Nexus 5 so good (KitKat is surely part of it) and how the device's price point may help tip the future of smartphones in the consumers' favor. Proof of concept phones are also on the table and we'll see how LG's G Flex and Samsung's Galaxy Round stand up to the scrutiny. So, slot some time into your schedule and head to the streaming links below for another engaging and informative episode of the Engadget Mobile Podcast!

Engadget Mobile Podcast 195 - 11.1.13

We hope you didn't wear out your sweet tooth this Halloween, because our host Brad Molen is joined by Android and Me's Taylor Wimberly for a big bite of Android 4.4 KitKat. A new Google OS wouldn't mean as much without a new reference device rollout, so we dive into the details of the Nexus 5 handset, as well. While lots of early adopters are eagerly waiting by the mailbox for their Google delivery, Brad humbly admits to already having scored both the black and white versions to take for spin. Not only that, but Taylor is a bona fide Ara Scout and discusses the potential of Project Ara's modular phone concept. So rest up your sugar-soaked selves and ease into a fresh edition of the Engadget Mobile Podcast via the streaming links below.
