Easy way to Learn outside my core tech Area

I really have enjoyed this podcast since I found in late in 2020. I listen to the new ones and go back through the history.

I am in tech, but not not in the backbone networking. I find this really interesting, and have learned lot from this. If you have a broad tech background, this is easy to listen to and mostly understand,.
