Customer Reviews

Banjaxed909 ,

Superb

Great show ranging across all the news in tech. First class journalism, not afraid to look at difficult subjects and ethics when necessary, but also revelling in the developments that tech can open up. New hires are fully up to the standard of the existing presenters and there is a strong teamwork feel about the whole product with a very polished and professional feel to the shows.

Worth catching up with the live video feeds occasionally if you can, because they start during studio setup and end after post-show tasks are completed, which means you can get a glimpse of how calmly the whole team cope with things like glitching links to remote guests, and the other tasks involved in putting together a show that goes out in multiple formats.

Political Commentary doesn’t belong

It’s a shame that the show delves into political commentary too frequently, ruining an otherwise interesting show. It is needless and doesn’t belong in a technology podcast.

Unlistenable

Used to be OK but now just awful.
