My Favorite Tech Podcast

Great show! There’s always a nice panel of tech journalists and the topics are endlessly fascinating. It’s a great way to review the week in tech and culture. The conversations are intellectual yet fun.

Definitely a superior panel-style “talking heads” podcast. I always look forward to new episodes when they drop at the end of the week.

Like the podcast! It’s a must-listen to when I’m cooking in the galley of my boat on a Friday night in the Marshall Islands. Mark: You are terrific ... I particularly like it when Clare Riley is on the panel... and I enjoy most of the topics... I guess my favorite stuff is new gizmos, sites, and trends... Thanks, Karen
