A continuing favourite
Truly an entertaining and informative podcast. The scope of discussion and the natural, sometimes irreverent, style makes this a must-listen every two weeks.
Long may it continue.
Great round up of the week’s tech news
Always enjoy listening to the team chat about the week’s tech news. Two cynics vs two (somewhat) optimists! It works! It’s never too technical and always entertaining. Keep it up!
Clumsy but nice
A bunch of blokes who break all the rules of good podcasting: clumsy, ameturish presentation, crap equipment Yet they manage to turn out a completely charming, engaging and informative podcast. I have listened to every podcast since they started. Don’t change a thing please!
