Customer Reviews

BelgianJ ,

Smart and efficient

Smart podcast from two very smart english tech journalists. UK centric, but the tech world is global enough for mainland folks to feel concerned. Great insights on specific subjects, and hilarious transitions between subjects!
Thanks for the great show!
