On The Verge is the only show of its kind — a late night talk show for tech enthusiasts and forward-thinkers. Join host Joshua Topolsky along with Nilay Patel, Paul Miller and the The Verge team as they take you on a wild ride along the cutting edge of tech news and entertainment. If you don't watch it, your future-self will probably visit you using a time machine and tell you how your life was ruined because of your poor choices.

This is my next tech late night talk show.
Very happy this exists. Joshua Topolsky has a great sense of humor. I love their podcast & this show is great too.
Get to the point
This is another podcast where the hosts joke around and talk about themselves for the first five minutes – their clothes, their personal schedules, the logistics of making the podcast and so on. This is why I stopped listening to CNET podcasts – it's all about them.
Some of us have limited time for listening to podcasts would like to hear about the supposed topic rather than a bunch of people we don't know joking around amongst themselves about nothing. I wish On The Verge was as sharp as the actual website is; that's what I was expecting.
Great, quirky look at top tech news
With the pending end to DiggNation coming soon, the team at Verge give us an updated look at what's happening in tech from the inside with all the players in the industry and their editors, who head out on the street and get the pulse on the street of what's new, and what works.
