Very good

Really interesting and well informed.
Just wish Kenneth cukier wouldn’t do that slow outro....

refreshing and well-informed take on current technology stories

This is a good podcast for keeping up to date with tech trends - recommended for anyone with an interest in how scientific advances are likely to change society. My only complaint would be that there are too many adverts.
