Must Subscribe Podcast
I have been listening for years. If you are an electrical engineer and have not subscribed yet, you’re missing out.
Like fine wine this podcast gets better and better.
I wish this show came out twice a week! I love the banter and perspective that both hosts bring to the mic. Dave’s old school pragmatic approach is invaluable and Chris’ interviews and dives into firmware have been amazing. He is doing a great job of showcasing the cutting edge convergence of hi-tech circuitry and software in a way that makes it more approachable for people just diving into the subject.
