A weekly show about pain points in tech

    Let's Talk about 5G

    Let's Talk about 5G

    Jeff and Nick talk about the misinformation and confusion surrounding 5G and its nationwide rollout. Hold on to your hats because this one gets pretty wonky. There's also some talk about the concern surrounding Huawei radios being used for 5G deployment and what that would mean for the US to have them in place. Let's be honest, it gets a little political and it gets into areas we aren't super comfortable with, so here's a bunch of resources that we used to talk about these topics:

Unsure

So I've been listening to the podcast since it debuted. I have to say that I'm unsure if I like Nick or not. For some reason, every time he talks I start to get gassy.

I don't know if I have a medical problem, or if Nick's voice has a certain auditory flatulence to it. Oh well, it's a good podcast.

Great Podcast

Pain in the Techus is a great podcast that helps keep me updated on what's happening in a broad variety of technology. As someone who isn't that big into the latest gadgets and gizmos, its very easy to listen to for the layman and highly entertaining.

Plus the soothing dulcet tones of Nick and Jeff helps me feel relaxed on what is frequently a frustrating commute.
