Techy without being too techy

This is such a great podcast from two guys that are clearly passionate about what they do. Can’t wait for the next episode after a big binge. When are you back guys?

A relevant and well delivered podcast. Voice is on the up!

Thanks for creating this podcast, believe it could have a fair few more listeners in the years to come as Alexa, Google Home, Cortana and the rest explode into the homes of the everyday consumer.

How do I get in touch about recommending a guest to join you on the show? Would you be able to do something this week?

A very accessible and entertaining discussion about technology and potential impacts on the world. You don’t have to a techie to enjoy it (I’m not). I’ve learnt loads from this podcast!
