It's an All About Android cast takeover with Florence Ion and Ron Richards joining Jason Howell on the show. Thankfully, there's very little Android news to report, including the reveal of the Tesla Model 3.

Also, Sam Machkovech from Ars Technica shows us how he feels about Nintendo's social network, Miitomo.
