The best tech journalism of the day!

I’ve been listening to Tom and his collaborators for more than 10 years now and it’s one of the best podcasts on tech journalism. I’ve tried others but I keep coming back to this for its coverage, depth and succinct format. Big shout out to the regular crew of Tom, Sarah and Roger who bring a lot of dedication and experience to the show. The energy and enthusiasm and the camaraderie of people participating in the show is also another reason to listen to it first thing in the morning. This is absolutely the show you want to watch for your daily dose of tech news and opinions.

informative and great news

This is possibly the most perfect podcast for tech at the moment. Gives you a good all round update of the current news and events in tech.
Also with a diverse range of guests who are an excellent representation of various areas of tech. Make sure to become a patron to get the extended chat

Mixed Bag

The show is usually quite good, though a tad repetitive with too much filler at times. Main hosts are great but some guests make it unbearable to listen to. Hoping over time they cull the weaker/annoying ones. Still worth a listen.
