Best tech network.

Stuck on Politics

This show has lost all tech relevance. I am not interested in Elon Musk bashing or politics, I came here for technology. Whether you hate Twitter or not. Despite feedback and comments from viewers to stick to tech, it comes back to political views of the host. Even the guests try to pull the show back on topic. Now they will spend more than a year stuck on AI. What else is there to say? I know it is easy to find guests familiar with AI but there’s more in Tech than AI. Enough has be rehashed for now. Sorry, I won’t listen whether it’s $7 or free anymore. Jumped the Shark.

Lost interest in this pod

the Twitter/Elon schadenfreude is unlistenable. The vaccine cheerleading during the pandemic was annoying. The pod got way too political during Trump’s presidency. I still enjoy the Mac/Apple podcast though. I used to come to this for a more global view of the tech industry, which it does not provide me.
