tech talk with humor
I really like that these guys use humor well there podcasting about technology. It’s very enjoyable way to spend maybe an hour or less good job.
Somebody recommended me this podcast who is on YouTube. And I find it to be pretty interesting after subscribing a few months or just about a month ago. The person that recommended this is Gallagher 123123. He has the channel name shown above, and that is the channel that he uses on YouTube. I would really love if this podcast will go out there for more people to know about it rather than for blind people to know about it because it would be useful for any braille teacher that would be learning about these that they don’t really know I’ve got a lot of you in this podcast do you know about from all 100+ episodes. And I think for informational purposes as well will also be a good idea to use the podcast because we blind people would love to hear a lot interesting technology news. I just do recommend this to others.
I love listening to this podcast. You will find information that is useful. The podcasts are entertaining as well. Well done!
