Love the show, quite informative and entertaining, would have given a 5 star review if it wasn’t for the gambling ads. I don’t mind ads in general but the show should be a bit more selective about who they receive sponsorship from.

This show has been one of my favourites for a long time but has really started to go downhill over the last few months. Meaningful discussion is scarce - The Verge has a lot of insightful reporters, and when they have the opportunity share their insights on this show they are often valuable and...Read full review »

Mistaking snark for wit, the podcast has lost its footing. The hosts now senselessly repeat the things that made the show famous, like totems designed to desperately build its former identity into a “Brand”. They seem to believe that negativity as a default is cool and enthusiasm ironically...Read full review »

Would be better if they stopped trying to be comedians - it gets tiresome so I end up skipping whole sections (show doesn’t even have chapters - which you’d think a tech podcast would be aware of and implement ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

a real joy to listen to - and a real source of humor and optimism in an ever stranger world thanks guys love you!

The addition of Alex to the show is good as in it adds a female voice. But it is bad in every other way. Alex says things like- “if you buy this laptop, you’re DUMB.” and “X feature is …DUMB.” There are moments where I think that Alex is not paying attention to the conversation and is trying to...Read full review »

Used to love this show until it turned into a terrible comedy pun fest.
extralarger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/22
Vergcast is by far my favourite podcast, but the Wednesday show format just isn’t working for me at all. We are only 2 episodes in and this week we had a 20 minute segment listening to terrible audio through Bluetooth speakers. While this may be interesting if your looking for this info, that’s a...Read full review »

I enjoy the material but it is cringeworthy how they all only laugh at their own jokes. Please stop to make it more Enjoyable.

I was sad to see Dieter go, but I’m happy with the cast. I’ve always loved the common fixtures of the pod, Nilay and Alex especially, and Monica whenever a new laptop comes out. Evolving the cast with time makes me like it more because I’m still going to be listening as long as the Gene5is and...Read full review »

What can be said about rumors… it’s garbage.
NuclearFallout via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/22
Dieter leaving was the end of this for me. New cast is not as interesting and has less to contribute. The discussion feels much less informed.

Like It’s like, like someone like made a podcast like where they like tried to like say the word like like as many times as like possible

It looks like Nilay Patel is transitioning out of the Vergecast, the original cast is all gone except for him and they just tied to revamped the show. Unfortunately the new cast is not as clever, smart, charismatic or philosophical as the originals. I used to crack and cry laughing at the old...Read full review »

Please kill the interpolated theme song with fire, otherwise, rock on!

I was shook when this version came on.

Great pod with the best host’s in technology journalism. I’m sad that Dieter is gone but Mr Patel is still more than a great host.

Great pod
Michael MacGillivray via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/25/22
Edit: Sending this back up to five stars. I think Alex got some training or something because she, and the show, we’re great this week (5/20)! All the interrupting and bad jokes were gone, much better banter and contributions. Keep it up! Old review: This has long been one of my favorite podcasts...Read full review »

I don't know what happened to this podast. What used to be an informative hour, often with a deep dive into some of the more obscure sides of tech, has just turned into 60 minutes of giggling and laughing at things that are probably inside jokes at the Verge. Far from what it used to be.Read full review »

So happy to see David Pierce come back to this. He has one of the best viewpoints on technology and am glad he’s back talking about the consumer side of things! Good call, Nilay.

Never rate podcasts but really digging the gadget series

Show is great. Always love Nilay, Tom Warren, and others. Have to get Alex Cranz off and her overly nerdy, cringey one-liners and perspectives and constant interruptions (“Yeah!” “Yeah!”). Her opinions are quickly thought out and light. She gets constantly corrected and challenged by Nilay.

Jeez, what’s with the continuous inane comments by the panel? The show is full of screwy, juvenile, and simplistic, opinions and commentary. Why does everything have to trigger a round of laughter and teenage giggling? Unfollowing, and will find a serious podcast.

Here for the tech news, not the bias political left agenda and personal views…leaving
LukeDW via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/10/22
One of the better shows, but as of late the signal to noise ratio is going down. Would be nice to get hosts that do more than giggle and speak nonsense and actually bring up new points of views and background on the topics.
Janniq_2014 via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 04/08/22
very funny. Nilay, Dieter
NahidIslam via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/06/22
Been listening for such a long time … so sad to click unsubscribe. But Alex cranz really was the last straw …
dksaga via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/22
Alex Cranz has ruined this Podcast for me. I don’t appreciate her constant interruptions and her cringey one liners which completely derails the conversation. I stuck around because I loved listening to Nilay and Dieter but now that Dieter has gone to Google I will stop listening.
Shawnny Canuck via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/25/22
I have been a listener for a while and thoroughly enjoy the podcast every week. Dieter going away is a bummer and discussions are a little diluted without him. And for the life of me, I cannot understand what value does Alex Cranz bring to the table. She is super annoying and I feel like my IQ...Read full review »

Love Nilay’s hostmanship and insights and the team’s coverage. Will miss Deiter Bohn sorely though. (Also miss Ctrl+Walt+Delete.) Great tech topics. It’s fun too. Look forward to the Vergecast every Friday; it’s one of my top listens.
pintos-n-cheese via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/22
For “podcasters” to use the word “like” in every other sentence, this sounds like a group of teenagers sitting around Zoom talking to one another about technology. If these journalists can avoid using the word “like” in every other sentence in print, they should definitely do it on the podcast.

stevjoob via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 03/17/22
I have listened to this podcast since the days before the Verge had a real name and Joshua Topolsky was the man in charge. I can hardly stand to listen any longer as the SNARK has become like going to a Trump Rally with so many mistakes and exagerations. They must not be on good terms with...Read full review »
You've Done it This Time Marco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/22
Now Dieter has gone it’s amplified Alex Cranz & therefore the show to an almost unlistenable level. The way she finds every single comment from other hosts sooooo hilarious is full on cringe. Also, everything she adds to a conversations is an attempt at comedy instead of actual...Read full review »
Rowdy2026 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/11/22
The Verge is a great podcast but I have one request. Due to the varied nature of tech topics covered, I’m not interested in them all. Please adopt “Chapters” like Apple Insider, Mac Power Users and The Accidental Tech Podcast, as an example. That way I can pick and chose which topic I want to...Read full review »
Rad Geezer via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/11/22
Strong content, though veeeeery easy on Google. Would like to see fairer/less biased reporting on that front, especially now that Dieter is moving to Google.
Jim.!? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/22
I don’t normally post internet criticism — there’s enough negativity out there already. However, this is the mechanism to provide feedback where Nilay and cohosts might see it so here goes. This was once my favorite podcast, until they hired Alex Cranz. Now she’s all over every episode, edging...Read full review »

Very biased

Even when I’m a total Luddite and have no idea what the specs mean, I love the good will, kindness and expertise of the group. I’m smarter by a bit and happier by a lot for listening to them. I’ll miss Dieter.
Irene1960 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/22
It’s clear that other hosts haven’t been fond of Alex’s increasing role on this podcast, and they speak for a large portion of the audience. Although Alex has meaningful insights, lately it’s been the Nilay
