Really sorry to hear this podcast is ending. I’ve really enjoyed listening the banter between Allan and Chris. I will miss the weekly podcasts. Maybe rethink the format and content for a more general podcast about technology geared towards a general audience on a less frequent basis. Thank you gentlemen.
