A new show will be available every few weeks. The Show is aimed at anyone who's either just purchased or is about to
purchase a smartphone. This is the feed for the (now) 540p width, low bitrate version, aimed at playback on smaller mobiles and handheld devices - higher resolution versions are available on the 'stevelitchfield' YouTube channel.

Good for alternative views

If you have mostly an Apple-centric US-based diet of podcasts try this one to keep abreast of the rest. Steve won't like to admit that he doesn't cover Apple much but really he doesn't! Good banter and rants to entertain though. Worth a listen and subscribe.

Consistently great video

I love Steve's excellent weekly video. He tells it as it is.

I learn so much from The Phones Show

Every episode of The Phones Show is packed with interesting and useful information. I just watched a history of smartphones, tracing the devices over the last 20 years, and learned so much! Great episode and The Phones Show overall is a real bonus for anyone interested in mobile technology — both the past, the present and the future!
