The 404 is a daily audio podcast about technology and popular culture produced by CNET. The show is hosted by Jeff Bakalar, and Justin Yu. Originally known as The Dudecast, The 404 began recording in January 2008. Randall Bennett co-hosted the first one hundred episodes of the show before his departure from CNET in 2008.
The hosts plan a general outline for each show known as The Rundown, usually consisting of several tech, pop-culture, or off-beat news stories. However, attempts to follow this outline fail regularly. Most episodes include user-generated content in the form of email and voicemail. A live video stream is also available, featuring a live chat room where listeners can interact with the hosts during the recording.
