Best weekly tech podcast

Ok the title pretty much sums it up. Marc and his team of awesome weekly guests fill my ears with science tech and more each and every week. While the occasional zombie apocalypse might be uncovered and the end of the world is Near predication might give you heart murmurs, it’s so worth it. Marc plays the role of you or I to his field of experts uncovering the real down to earth truth about all the things I love. Subscribe to day to enjoy a back catalogue of brilliance.

Getting a little too political

Have enjoyed the shows over the years however keep the political views and opinions to yourselves. Deal with the topics and facts.

I look forward to this every week

Marc asked for reviews so here I am, against my will, possibly due to the chip Elon just implanted in my brain. But it’s FDA approved, so don’t worry.

Love Marc, love the topics, love the guests. It gets deep enough to be informative but is still easy to digest. I appreciate that it delves into the ethics and philosophical issues behind tech. The conversational approach keeps me company while I’m working / cleaning / knitting a jumper for my Alexa because she’s cold.

Thanks for a great podcast.
