Engadget Podcast 373 - 12.19.13

Try as they may to put this week's podcast into a tailspin; Brian, Terrence and Ben end up delivering a good deal of sane discussion on proper tech news. The seriousness quickly degrades, however, and your hosts (aka the Engadget Wreckin' Cru) bounce from oddball NES Remixes of their own making to the sad reality that Ben may never hear his dog actually talk. Holiday vibes have invaded the studio and are ready for your ears; all you need to do is head down to the streaming links below to bask in a fresh edition of the Engadget Podcast.

Hosts: Brian Heater, Terrence O'Brien, Ben Gilbert

Producer: Jon Turi
