A Tech Show for All

Getting geeky, the word awesome definitely describes this show. Covering the awesome tech items of the week with great hosts and great guests.

Especially for ‘Burgh folk, but interesting for everybody

Sorg and company are personable, production quality is high, and the tech-centered talk is interesting. Yes, it’s based in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, and yes I appreciate it a bit more having been from there, but anybody interested in fun tech news should at least give it a try. Much love.
