Welcome to the Android Police Podcast Live for Thursday, December 11th! We’ll be starting soon – if you don’t see a YouTube player, we haven’t begun.

Welcome to the home of the Android Police Podcast’s live broadcast. We’re live every Thursday (unless otherwise noted on the official calendar below) at 5:30PM PST (8:30PM EST) – or perhaps a few minutes after that – every week. This post will be stickied on the Android Police homepage whenever we’re broadcasting, so if you see it, we’re either live right now, or about to be!

Picture yourself on a couch. Now, across the room is a television. It’s just a 48″ 720p flatscreen, hooked up to a digital cable box Time Warner sent you like 8 years ago that is slow as molasses and has no remaining DVR space, and beside that is the old Xbox 360 you haven’t touched in many a fortnight and is presumably home to a small but happy civilization of dust-eating molds and fungi who are probably as old as the component video cable you have attached to it.
