Newbie friendly podcast

These guys are awesome! It’s really hard to follow some of the tech reviews if you’re not super deep in the industry. These guys keep it simple and straightforward giving you the best comparisons and helping cut the fluff and fight out of the decision making.

I like the personal and no bs approach of this podcast too. They keep it real and down to earth for you. A couple of real guys with some real tech talk. This is the third episode I’ve listened to and I’m hooked. Looking forward to hearing more.
