Locar Ferrata ,

The BEST long format tech podcast out there!

Linus and Luke do an amazing job talking about recent developments in tech, despite the amount of tangents they go on. These two just have great chemistry and humor. This was the first podcast I listened to (on YouTube ~5 years ago?) and I listen to them to this day!

P.S. Luke’s laughing will hurt your ears if youre wearing ear/headphones from time to time 😅

Why not make it a Video Podcast instead of Audio?

Or why not BOTH?
