Great premise but patronizing and bombastic

Although I’ve only listened to a few episodes thus far, the overwhelming impression I’ve gotten is that the hosts belong on an episode of Bill Maher — that is to say, that they are bombastic, highly opinionated pundits that are faking a “conversation” while peddling opinions without any set script or the listener in mind. If you like Joe Rogan-like experiences, are tech-obsessed, and dabble with the AM side of your car radio, then this might be for you. As such, this isn’t for me.

Boring as moldy toast

Just another in a cottage industry of analysts who profess insight yet perform a very slick form of intellectual slight of hand. There will always be a market for wannabe gurus peddling the keys to life (or, in this case, tech). Great at providing the illusion of knowledge but, in the end, it's as substantial as a magician's puff of smoke.

Just amazing

I’ve started to re-listen from the beginning (which I recommend to everyone because most of the episodes are timeless) and the I’ve changed my mind and/or saw a new perspective so many times. I’m writing this after I’ve listened to the Xiaomi episode and Ben and James’ discussion about the hypocritical views of the people getting on their soapbox about worker conditions in China just opened my mind and helped me view the whole situation from a new perspective. Thank you guys so much!
