NFTs helped me write this review.

Sold all my album cover NFTs just so I could buy a new deep purple 1 TB IPhone 14 Pro Max so I could write this review in iTunes.

As a 48 year old IT veteran and long time listener, Jason and Brian dish common sense like a comically burned out IT guy who has had about enough of your malarky. Here just take it away and get out of my office.

And can’t forget the jewel of the show, Dave Bitner, a security expert and self confirmed furry who will make you lie awake at night and wonder if your stuff is secure. I secretly think Dave is an AI - how could he possibly have time to record all those other excellent podcasts?

So grumpy the are inspiring me to start my own podcast

Been listening for a while, easy to listen to and I often agree with their views but always interested to listen to what they have to say.

Best tech podcast

This is a very enjoyable podcast that keeps me informed on the latest trends in technology. I really like the cybersecurity discussions. Stay grumpy! Jeff W
