Amazing time saving info

If you are looking for something that needs to be automated or things that you didnt even know you could automate, this is the show. Dave and Rose are amazing at the detail of explaining things.

No longer valuable

This used to be a good show with ideas on how to automate various parts of your home and computing life, but it seems to have devolved into Rosemary rapid-fire bragging about her own use of automation with little to no explanation. I have been listening for years and just become increasingly frustrated. Two stars for Sparky interjecting occasionally.

Fun for automation nerds…

This is a great podcast full of tons of tips and covering a wide range of automation topics. The hosts are genuinely into this stuff and it shows.

My one hopefully constructive bit of criticism. With two enthusiastic hosts who
can both tend to “go down the rabbit hole” on occasion, the podcast can become a little unfocused and hard to follow. Maybe having one host being responsible for adhering to an episode outline would be helpful.
