This week, Cherlynn and Devindra are joined by senior mobile editor Chris Velazco to try and make sense of Samsungs Awesome Unpacked event. The company didnt just unveil new Galaxy A-series phones, but also tried excruciatingly hard to flex its understanding of Gen Z lingo. We also take a look at Googles new Nest Hub, which is a smart display that uses radar to tell when youre asleep. Is that cool or creepy? Plus, updates from elsewhere PC hardware land with news from Intel, AMD and Alienware.

Stay tuned to the end of the episode for interviews with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman on his upcoming Amazon animated series Invincible as well as Fede Alvarez, director of the upcoming Apple TV series Calls.
