Vox Media is creating Twitter livestreamed shows out of a blog and a podcast.
Circuit Breaker debuts Oct. 3 and will livestream every Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. The Verge editor in chief Nilay Patel and the Circuit Breaker team of Paul Miller, Jake Kastrenakes, Ashley Carman and Chaim Gartenberg “will review and experiment with the hottest gadgets everyone wants right now and the weirdest ones we’ll want tomorrow,” Vox Media said in a release announcing the two shows.
The Polygon Show will debut on Twitter Oct. 12 and livestream Thursdays at 5 p.m. ET. Polygon’s Chelsea Stark, Allegra Frank, Simone de Rochefort and Ashley Oh “will take a deep (and often irreverent) dive into all things gaming and culture” and incorporate questions, tweets and fan art.
