Informative and entertaining

I look forward to listening to these guys. They have great guests to speak on a variety of subjects. Once a new episode is available I fix a cup of tea, recline and prop my feet because I know I am going to get a treat. Keep of the good work.

Banter Banter

AT Banter is an entertaining cast. Rob, Ryan and Steve will make you smile, cringe, think and may even tick you off a little but you will definitely get a wide variety of topics and guests to open your mind to the world of assistive technology and living a full life despite challenges. Give the show several listens before deciding you will find something to like, eh!

Ted_Drake ,

Diverse topics given more than a brief synopsis

I listen regularly because they have great guests and give the interviews enough time to talk about more than bullet points and sales pitches. They also enjoy themselves and make it fun to listen.
