If you want a podcast where you get to feel like you are hanging out with other home theater and home automation enthusiasts, this is for you. Braden and Ara are very personable and entertaining to listen to. A good place to pick up useful information on these topics (news, product review) in an entertaining format. You may not always agree with their opinions but they are straight shooters.
