LOVE!! Fav Podcast!!

I don't do reviews often, but Kim Komando's "Tech Refresh" is my fav. Love brand new not true segment. I learn something every week from Kim's show. Thank you Kim, Mike, Allie & Ben. Y'all are a great team & we appreciate y'all!🤩💯 UPDATE---10/5/21--- Kim... As much as I enjoy your content, I have to let you know one thing that I can't stand that you do in your newsletters. First, you send a ton of separate emails for "one" newsletter (reminds me of being SPAMMED & it's practically impossible to unsubscribe since you send multiple emails for "obe" subscription request) & when you put a story inside the newsletter, we have to click multiple different times on different links just to read the story. WHY do we have to click so many links just to read a story? Curious, do you get paid for how many clicks you get for a story of what? It is so frustrating tho! Please stop making us click a link inside of a link, inside of yet ANOTHER link just to read ONE story. Geez!
🚨🚨🚨UPDATE🚨🚨🚨11/11/21---
Kim your podcast has way too many jokes now. WHY?? I tune in to hear about digital news, NOT jokes. Please slow down on the jokes. Your show has turned into a comedy show. I used to love your show, but now, it's more like a comedy podcast. Pls do better & stop w all the jokes.
