Always insightful

A highlight of the week.
The interviews are on point and the discussions between Matt and Chris always leave me with a smile on my face!

The kermode and mayo of the cio world

Love their rants - but equally educational and one of the best vehicles or learning what’s going on in the cio space in the uk.

Looking forward to hearing the next 100 shows!

My weekly indulgence into distilling the world of Tech

Both Matt and Chris are ageing like a fine whiskey....

Mark Twain once wrote..
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”

WB40 podcast is like a good whiskey...savour the cynicism, have a deep smell of the undertones and then sip the humour and enjoy the breath of knowledge shared by some of the sharpest, on point guests that a fine Malt can offer...go on indulge yourself!
