Every Friday, The edge publishes our flagship podcast, The VergecastWhere roadside Editor-in-Chief Nilay Patel, Editor-in-Chief David Pierce and Editor-in-Chief Alex Cranz discuss the week in Tech News with the reporters and editors covering the biggest stories.

In today’s episode, Nilay and Alex chat with roadside senior reviewer Monica Chin on her review of Apple’s 13-inch Macbook Pro with the M2 chip. While the chassis is still the same as the previous model, the changes associated with the new M2 processor are significant. Apple has yet to release their redesigned M2 Macbook Air, so should you wait before buying the Pro? Monica shares her thoughts.

For the rest of the show we switch crews. Alex and David lead the discussion with roadside deputy editor Dan Seifert on the state of streaming – with Netflix cutting 300 jobs after losing subscribers and a general lack of innovation and new features across all streaming apps.

In the final segment, we focus on the gadget coverage we are known for. We learned about the first phone from Nothing, got to know Solana’s crypto phone, and Dan begins to enjoy using the Microsoft Surface Duo 2 six months after launch.

There’s a lot more in between, so listen here or on your favorite podcast player for the full show.
