Welcome to Vergecast Lonely Paul edition. Dieter and Nilay are out this week, so Paul enlisted some of his colleagues who would never let him down like that and made his own Vergecast that’s centered around talking to people not named Dieter or Nilay. Want to learn what AT&T’s new DirecTV Now service has to do with net neutrality? Want to figure out why nearly all women and nearly everybody actually loves Gilmore Girls? Want to know if video games are good sometimes? Want to experience what it would be like to stand in line for Snapchat Spectacles but not actually purchase Spectacles because you hate lines? Then you’ll probably love what we’ve done here.
2:39 – Interview with T.C. Sottek on net neutrality
33:24 – Interview with Kaitlyn Tiffany on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
1:06:30 – Interview with Ashley Carman live at the Snapchat Spectacles line in NYC
