Edging toward Click & Clack

This show started strong, but is now settled in and moving toward Car Talk territory, with forced jokes and forced chuckles in response. Casey needs to stop trying so hard. He also needs to STOP YELLING. I mean, even right at the beginning, during the topic accouncements, so much yelling that the baby cries and the cat runs out of the room. He yells so hard that he knocked a star off my rating. Otherwise, a great show.

reliably informative and entertaining

Well produced and informative. The hosts are smart and funny and have great rapport.

Get smarter and have a great time

I love the chemistry between Kevin and Casey. They’re really enjoyable to listen to and at the same time I’ll learning a lot about different areas of tech, so much so that I can have intelligent conversations with my “techie” friends.

I would highly recommend this podcast!
