Awesome way to stay informed

I'm a big TWiT fan, and listen to this podcast religiously as a way to stay informed about tech news.

Sometimes I wish the conversations could be more concise as the speakers have a tendency to go off on tangents. Also, the audio quality sometimes leaves something to be desired, and it can be very frustrating when some speakers audio is too low and others is too high. I've been noticing this occur far too often recently. I hope Leo gets the levels balanced out soon.

One of my favs

Always look forward to listening to this podcast every week. Very smart discussions about everything that's happening on the web.

Political Content

Too much political drivel anymore to be useful as a Tech show.
