On The Verge, Episode 010: Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley, Polygon's Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick, and Paul's trip to NASA

On The Verge 010

One thing to keep in mind in this exciting episode of On The Verge: we shot it just hours before the election results came in. As such, Josh, Paul, and Nilay sat down and recorded a news segment for either major outcome — all of which, of course, we kept intact for your viewing pleasure.

It was also a time of celebration as The Verge last week celebrated its one year anniversary, Paul passed the six-month mark for living offline, which he celebrated with some awesome trips to Maker Faire and NASA. We also wrapped up one of the craziest months in the industry ever: iPad mini, Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and a brand new Microsoft (Windows 8, Windows Phone 8). Lots to talk about, lots to see.

Josh sat down with Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley, who had a lot to say on the future of the check-in and discovery service. Also on the set, we have Polygon Senior Editors Chris Plante and Russ Frushtick to talk about the launch of our new favorite video game sister website — be sure to check out Press Reset, Cooperatives, and The Besties Podcast for even more of the dynamic duo.
