Really really useful stuff

I like this podcast as they get on with the job without wittering on about cats.

Seriously though, this is a nice idea for a podcast, highlighting the tech stuff that affects everyone (social media, cloud storage, privacy) and talking about it in simple terms, with some useful ideas thrown in to help you use tech better.
