Cilia F ,

Great show!

Microphone/audio could use some work, hosts sound distant and a little muddled. Other than that, interesting discussions sprinkled with nerdy pop culture references make it fun. Definitely worth a listen!

Shadwell von Bernstein ,

Like so like you like and like so

If you want to listen to a couple of sophomoric boring bros drone on, this is for you. That some of these guys could in any way represent HF as a profession is truly terrifying.

zxynn91 ,

A must listen for everyone!

I’ve been listening to the podcast for the past year, and it’s interesting for not only human factors professionals but anyone who is keen on the latest technology that impacts human lives. I went back to past episodes to listen to almost all episodes now, and I wait for new episodes every week. Kudos for Nick and Blake for delivering interesting news every week!
