Very easy & informative ūüôĆūüŹĽūüôĆūüŹĽ

They have kept the conversation so balanced and entertaining that a non-tech geek like me also enjoyed the whole conversation.

I Really like the how they kept this balanced vibe during the podcast, a mix of seriousness with a sense of humour but not taking the either one to an extreme level. The podcast itself was quite informative and the way you guys stayed on the topic that was being discussed, it was appreciable. One thing you can do is try to make the podcast short by making parts of it as its a start for you guys, it’s better that the initial uploads be not too long, however it’s just an opinion. Best of luck for future uploads.

Mrym Saqib ,

Loved it !

Very informative and entertaining at the same time. Good job ūüĎćūüŹĽ
