The Android Central Podcast began in March 2010, long before Android was a household name. Back then, the site was run by a ragtag group of bloggers eager to tell the world about this incredible new mobile operating system, in an environment dominated by Motorola, HTC, BlackBerry and Apple. Things have changed a lot since then, and the crew that made up the first couple hundred episodes has long since dispersed. Well, save for a couple.
To celebrate 400 episodes of the best darn Android podcast in the world, we thought we'd go old school one last time — with a live video podcast hosted by the OG himself, Phil Nickinson.
Join us on October 18 at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST for an hour of classic #ACPodcast hijinks, featuring the original lineup of Phil Nickinson, Alex Dobie, Andrew Martonik, Russell Holly, and Jerry Hildenbrand. Plus a few special guests sprinkled throughout the hour.
Check back this weekend when the actual #ACPodcast400 launches with some more special content and a look back at the last couple of weeks of tech news.
Thanks for all the support over the years — we appreciate you.

The Pixel 4a picks up right where the 3a left off, with better specs, the same great camera, and a $50 lower price.
