Frankeex ,

General internet discussion

This is not so much about Google but more about the internet. Great show, good rotating guests. Lots of waffle and off topic chat but that’s what makes it feel “warm”

MelbAussie ,

Time to bin or revamp.

Should just be renamed to ‘This Week in Tech Additional’ as they hardly ever actually talk about Google. The length is also ridiculous as well and doesn’t add anything to the overall conversation, for example, Jeff talking about the most popular TikTok video right now and Leo talking about what’s currently happening with Elon Musk this week.

JessieDianne ,

Best mid week news podcast

I love this show, it’s not even a tech podcast really it’s more a news podcast because most news has a link to tech now days.
