There are a few things in this episode of The Verge­cast that you don’t want to miss. In a busy week that includ­ed a fold­able phone review, a Sam­sung hard­ware event, and a huge merg­er, we’ve got the per­fect peo­ple to dis­cuss all of this on our pod­cast.

Exec­u­tive edi­tor of The Verge and co-host of The Verge­cast Dieter Bohn reviewed Motorola’s updat­ed Razr with a fold­able screen. He also attend­ed an event where Sam­sung revealed its own fold­able phone, the Galaxy Z Flip. Dieter com­pares the two phones based on his first look at the Flip and also exam­ines whether the fea­tures of the phone are worth the price.

Dur­ing the sec­ond half of the show, edi­tor-in-chief of The Verge Nilay Patel exerts his exper­tise on antitrust pol­i­cy by explain­ing why the court let T‑Mobile and Sprint merge after a long tri­al, and the com­pli­cat­ed plan to turn Dish Net­work into the fourth nation­al wire­less car­ri­er.

Of course, we can’t for­get the seg­ment Paul Miller presents the lis­ten­er each week “Bring back Bump.” So lis­ten through the show here or through a pod­cast play­er of your choice to get all of the most impor­tant news in tech this week.
