Customer Reviews

i4o fan ,

Great listen!

Great, fun, informative conversation for casual and die hard techies everywhere!

Kirkman81 ,

Lucked into this one!

I actually met Kyle at a live recording of another podcast and after we talked for a while he told me I should give this a listen. Happy to report that it's a great show about tech! I've added it to my regular listening rotation now, which is great since I haven't had a decent tech podcast I could enjoy recently! Great job guys

Kylefisher45 ,

Awesome!

Great banter between 5 guys who love tech, it gets deep! Keep it up!
