For fans of Accidental Tech Podcast, The Talk Show, etc…
I started listening to Everyday Robots a few episodes back and it has quickly earned a place alongside ATP, The Talk Show, and a bevy of Relay.fm podcasts in my listening lineup.
Jonathan and Mark approach the week’s Apple-centric tech news with the passion and perspective of long-time fans of the ecosystem, occasionally delving into topics in the general tech world and interviewing guests to keep it fresh.
Also, while both hosts are iOS developers (and do cover matters of interest to those of us who write software for Apple’s platforms), the show isn’t overly technical or unapproachable for those who aren’t. It’s a nice balance.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was really interesting. They’re very knowledgeable and kept me engaged.
two nice folks talking tech ... that's for me!
A great new podcast from two folks after my own heart: fellow self-taught iOS developers. They discuss what's going on in the tech world and their own lives in a relaxed conversational manner. I really like this podcast, and so will you.
