First Episode of The Droid Life Show is Live Tonight!

Seriously, that title has no hypebeasting in it, whatsoever. We are in fact going to do a live broadcasted show tonight for the first time, that will hopefully turn into something that we can continue to do on a regular basis. It’s called The Droid Life Show, and yep, it’s about Android. Oh, and no, it’s not a podcast (people still do those?). This is a live Google+ Hangout with video feeds of the entire DL team – Ron, Tim, Eric and yours truly. 

During the broadcast, we plan to talk about hot topics from the last few days, rumors that have snuck into our inbox that you may not have heard yet, and anything else that the DL community couldn’t stop talking about. If anything, it’s a way for you to extend your obsession for Android and to watch four guys make fools of themselves.

We can’t promise that there will be fancy music, cheesy FM DJ noises, or gimmicky titles for topic sections, but it still should be a lot of fun. And what else were you going to watch tonight, pre-season NBA basketball or Gossip Girl?

The first episode is live tonight at 6:00PM Pacific (9:00PM for those on the east coast) and will be featured here on the site. We will try to keep the show to under an hour long. There will be a chat room for everyone to rant and rave and comment on the variety of Matrix-like green checkered shirts that may be seen.

To make sure you don’t miss the action, following us on Google+ is probably a great idea. We’ll also announce it live on Twitter as we get going. And again, all of the action will be posted right here, on Droid Life.

Wish us luck…

    Finally! I’ve been stuck with AC for my Android Live Webcasting needs!

  • Capt. Crunch

    Yes! Please show us the RAZR Maxx HD. It will put my RAZR maxx to shame oh well,

  • paul_cus

    Hell yeah, I was going to ask when you guys were going to start doing a show. Here’s my answer. I’ll be there.

    Guess I’ll have to sign back into g+ for the first time since I made the account :)

    Ugh! You’re on during the Tigers/Skankees game. I’ll try and tune in!! Go Tigers!

  • Radgatt

    So how long will this session last?

  • Chris Hollenbeck

    I found a picture of Kellex, He looks good in a suit…

    • Captain_Doug

      Don’t spoil the surprise!

    “Oh, and no, it’s not a podcast (people still do those?)….We can’t promise that there will be fancy music, cheesy FM DJ noises, or gimmicky titles for topic sections, but it still should be a lot of fun.” — Sounds like a rip on Tech News Today

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      No, they’re actually enjoyable :)

      • http://twitter.com/ThePeacedOut PeacedOut

        Agreed! Listen every day I drive home… not enough android coverage, but that’s might not be a bad thing. I just wish they would hype for the nexus program like they do for apple products

  • Alexander Garcia

    Yes!!! I will be tuning in!!! =)

  • Mark

    Is this going to be available for download later?

  • Jimbo

    Can this be watched through the Google + app? Or do you need to be using a computer? Sorry…never used the hangout feature.

  • Thomas

    Good to see Kellen actually still cares about site as most owners from competing sites have just disappered. Congrats Kellen, must be an exciting day.

  • http://twitter.com/worseisyet2come Jason

    No cheesy FM DJ noises? Then what’s the point? Need a honking clown nose and some sort of laser zap sound, minimum. Then call me.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Awesome! Will be sure to tune in.

  • Chris Hollenbeck

    Congrats!
    Is there a place we can suggest content? If not tonight, maybe future shows?

    Btw, since your are in Oregon (Portland?) you should get a growler of beer (Dechutes Inversion IPA?). Might take the edge of first show jitters. ;-)

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      There will be a live chat going on so we can all talk and have fun and you can submit topics for us to discuss. :)

  • Captain_Doug

    So excited for this. You droid-life guys rock.

  • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony I AM A TEXAN

  • satsmine2k4

  • Silver Veloz

    Of course, the only night this week I’m not home ( a work meeting). Ugh! Will it be recorded and available for playback later?

  • Futbolrunner

    Im def watching!

  • RoKBoy23

    This is longer over due. I hope you guys do well with this.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Hoping so as well. :)

  • Jigga_Z

    This is a great idea! Really looking forward to it :)

  • http://profiles.google.com/jeremy.sheehan Jeremy Sheehan

    Very nice! I’ve been wanting a good Android show to watch/listen to. If it’s available for watching after the fact, even better. I can’t watch anything live anymore. My Tivo and kids have destroyed that. Be sure to post a link after that fact if there is a recording of it.

    Thanks!

      • Mark F

        There is an option when you start it to have it recorded .

  • Mikezilla Harris

    Ha, gossip girl? Nice

  • Manny

    Aw man I have class until 6:05 :( I guess I’ll have to tune in a little bit late. How long is the show going to be?

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      We’re shooting for around an hour :)

  • moelsen8

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      I just like poking fun at podcasts. We’ll probably pull the audio and upload it somewhere. :P

      • moelsen8

        sweet. exciting times here at DL! hope there’s lots of nexus hypebeasting!!! good luck!

      • derekross

        That’s what we do, works well. :) Can’t wait to see/hear the show.

      • http://twitter.com/dgwood12 Dustin

        This would be great. Then I could listen to the show at work.

  • Aardvark99

    I’d like to see (hear) this in podcast form.

  • Greyhame

    Whaa…??

    Wow, good luck in the pilot episode!

  • http://twitter.com/f0r71fy Joshua Westfall

    You should talk about the BS Motorola and Google/Android are putting us D4 users through. Not just specifically us but all Motorola phone users.

    • moelsen8

      what kind of bs? the usual bs that’s been ongoing for like 2+ years now?

  • http://twitter.com/Crispityyy Chris Spells

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww snap!!! Kellex gettin some face time?!?!

    • http://AndroidTaskForce.com Timmy

      Heh, FaceTime. I see what you did there. ;)

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Shower is needed first.

  • prestone1

    piece of cake

  • jcorf

    Dang, I’m bummed that I won’t be able to catch this live!

  • mustbepbs

    Wait so..we get to see Kellen’s face? This is new.

    • RadicalPie

      Nope. It will just show his hands fondling a multitude of fancy devices we could only dream of.

      • Captain_Doug

        fondling. Great word choice.

        • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

          Fondling in this instance may be a little awkward, but I’m sure we can make it happen. :P

          • http://twitter.com/AMPthe13th Adrian M. Petty

            Put down the Nexus Q, Kellex. :P

        • http://roxannemook.myopenid.com/ Roxanne Mook

      • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

        They have posted videos with their faces in them before, that and you can see them in the reflections on most phone reviews too

        • LionStone

          I caught K in the beginning of the Google I/O conference…I should be a detective… :-)

    • akazerotime

      I hope he got a manicure for this

    • Trevor

      Actually, he’s gonna pull a Wilson, from Home Improvement.

      • mustbepbs

        That would be awesome. It would be a DL trademark. Kellen I hope you do this.

  • shdowman

    • Chris Hollenbeck

      Saying “first” is like achieving a good bowl movement. No one cares, and no one wants to hear about it..

      • Diablo81588

        Lol bowel*

        • Chris Hollenbeck

          Oops. :-D
          Edited.

    • S2556

      • LionStone
