Great technology show

Amber and Michael are always informed with the latest trends and news in the technology industry. They are a pleasure to listen to!

Firs Rate Tech Show

I have listened to the first three episodes of this new series with AmberMac and Michael Bancroft and look forward to more. With so many places to get the tech news these two play well of each other and their producer and present excellent content. Amber Mac is a tech vet getting her feet wet way back in the early days with Razorfish when an iPhone was just a gleam in Steve Job’s mind. Her experience and depth of understanding that both she and Michael have brings a quality to the listener that surpasses many of the other options out there. I am so glad they started this show on Sirius and that I can get to hear Amber and Michael again on a regular basis,
