Very helpful for tech podcast

Like the reviews from guest speakers.

Guests Add Nothing

No one knows it all but Leo is excellent at what he does.
I am interested in Home Audio & Photography also
But Scott only adds obscure fluff & useless banter.
Same with the photography expert.
Stick to the topics.

Disappointed

I never missed a show until hearing Leo’s comments about Canada and being US North. I don’t even want to waste my time commentating on the pure arrogance and disregard for the large Canadian audience. Our borders are closed to keep our most vulnerable safe. After 16 years I am no longer listening to Leo. Good luck and most of us won’t welcome you after that perspective.
