A Great Tech Round-Up

Brian does a fantastic job of keeping me up-to-date with the essential tech news. Don’t know how I’d be keeping up with it all without this show!

Sadly no longer worth the listen

As a long time ride home listener, it’s pretty sad to see what’s become of the podcast. Instead of reporting actual tech news, it’s daily updates on sideshow Twitter disputes buffeted by a massive amount of advertisements. The podcast now misses both the forest and the trees by, when not consumed by the most recent inane personality driven non-event, by devoting most coverage to the perpetual next big thing, from clubhouse to venture capital to crypto and NFTs, with copious and extremely blinkered and Ill informed editorializing. I can’t help but notice that the precipitous decline in quality happened around the same time as Brian started tinkering with new show formats, monetization schemes, and finally a VC fund. On the lookout for a decent replacement now.

Well written and informative, I could not imagine staying in the know without it.
