Typical Tom quality

Every time Tom’s voice comes to a podcast -,it’s time to pay attention. Well researched, well organized and good listening quality. What more could you ask ?

Well researched, well explained

Tom Merritt is well known in the tech news genre his in-depth research and acquired knowledge and his ability to explain complex technologies. With his mainstream news show, Daily Tech News Show, he doesn't have time to really dig deep though. With Know a Little More he can take 20 minutes to do a deep dive and help us understand.

Tom's 5G explanation revealed so many things I did not know (and I'm an engineer) and he explained each concept with not just the technical jargon but with real-world examples so you can remember why that particular bit might be important.

Looking forward to knowing a little more!
