"What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?"

" ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question."

When you're interviewing the world's most notorious phone leaker, he's bound to duck a question or two. But cautious though he is, Evan Blass --formerly of Pocketnow and currently known across the web by his pen name @evleaks-- is also a fountain of insight into the shadowy craft of being a professional spoiler. On today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, Evan shares the ups and downs of the underworld he's come to dominate, and gives us a glimpse into the man behind the brand - including some somber reflections on life with Multiple Sclerosis.

Before that, of course, we've got the usual news of the week, including Samsung-vs-Apple, a hilarious All New HTC One leak, a horrifying LG G Flex video, and (sigh) the first few trickles of Nexus 6 speculation. Also, Taylor Martin and I argue over the Galaxy S 5, only to find surprising common ground in our views of the Lumia Icon. It's all waiting for you on episode 086 of the Pocketnow Weekly, so turn the volume up and rip the knob off: we're here to talk mobile tech, and it's gonna get weird (in all the right ways).

This episode marks the debut of Pocketnow's new transition music between its News and Feature segments: a track called "Radiation" from the talented Ali Spagnola.

You may recognize the tune as one of the preloaded ringtones from your Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, or Nexus 4 - but it's a real song, from a real album. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali's website here:
