Interesting and enjoyable listening but frustrating at times,

This is usually an interesting chat for a couple of hours between journalists who cover tech. The discussions are generally right on the money analysing the news with good insights.
The most annoying part is Leo, who asks a question then waits for the person to get halfway through then interrupts and throws the whole thing off. The last 3 weeks he was away was much more listenable. Leo, I enjoy your comments and the podcast is fun, but re-listen to the podcasts again, give your guests time to finish first, at least some of the time!

Long Form Tech Talk Paradise

In a world with so much that is light-weight, bite sized, and frankly shallow grabs at click baits, it is a pleasure to discover discussion that goes into depth about tech issues. The guests are experts in their fields who can give insight into the background story behind the news. Highly recommended for all who want to know more than just the headlines.

Quality varies with guests

I’ve been listening to TWiT for almost a decade. The episodes with Greg are becoming unlistenable because he constantly talks over all the other guests. I’ve listed to basically every episode for a decade, but have given up on the 2 he has been on recently. If he can’t rein himself in to make a listenable podcast you need to stop booking him.
