Tech I never knew existed

I think what I like most about this show is hearing about all these news technologies I never knew were out there. I love to cook so the first episode - about that underground farm - was really interesting. But most of the episodes have a good guest discussing a fascinating topic.

Great content, insightful hosts

Really interesting topics and the hosts have obviously done their research to provide good questions.
