Pithy and Erudite

I love this podcast.

Not too chatty; not too nerdy; not all pretentious; not too long. Very interesting and humourously presented.

Squeeze it in your day somehow!

Technology presented seriously and Informative

Having a science degree I have always been interested in many areas of science and technology. A very interesting and wide ranging coverage of science and technology that is not all "gee wiz", it explains the relevance. Like the rest of The Economist, excellent journalism.
