Josh Topolsky and Paul Miller walk into a bar, but the bar is a recording studio.
The bartender, who is the recording engineer, asks, "Why the long faces?"
"Sigh," Paul says, and looks down at his feet. "Nothing but a buncha crummy phone rumors and probably fake slim PS3 pictures this week."
"It's hard to podcast when there's no exciting news to podcast about," says Josh, staring off into the distance.
The door slams open: it's Nilay Patel. "I know what'll cheer you guys up!" he says as he slams three stiff drinks down on the table. "Trashing AT&T about the Slingplayer app!"
Smiles creep over Josh and Paul's faces. They nod, the engineer hits the record button, and history is made: The Engadget Podcast, volume 146.
Update: We added a video feed of your charming hosts from the recording studio after the break. It's definitely an experiment at this stage, so let us know what you think!
