Dietbruboy ,

Love it!

Listen every episode; love hearing Ian and Chris's views, on all things tech and occasionally the wider media world. If I had a D.O. T-shirt it would have to say "friend-of-the-show" on it! Drone update needed guys!!

Deaf Lemon ,

Really good fun, talking tech but not in serious way...

Great show, met these guys at GlasMUG and they gave an insight into the work that goes into making the Podcast. I enjoy the sense of humour and lively chat that's in each podcast. Good, easy listening with a geek focus. Well worth subscribing, you know it makes sense :-)

Get's better by the week (or fortnight :-)
