5 episodes

Here in the Popular Science office, we could talk about tech all day. Every week has new products, events, and controversies to cover. However, our boss says that if we’re going to sit around talking technology, we had to “make some content,” and thus, this tech podcast was born.

Every week, we’ll take a look at the biggest stories from new gadgets releases to overarching topics like artificial intelligence to virtual reality and beyond. Check out a new episode every Monday and email us questions, suggestions, or unabashed compliments at LWIT@popsci.com or tweet us https://www.twitter.com/LastWeekInTech.

Worth the listen

Love the podcast. They make me laugh out loud, they address relevant subjects that impact your life now and they don’t spend 30 minutes gushing over their guests before talking about something like a lot of other podcasts.

Biased Toward Apple

I want to give this show a good rating, but they are just too biased toward apple. I am looking for a tech show that is a little more subjective. Also way too much talk on social media from what I have heard so far.

The Real Zen Boy ,

Steady decline into unsubscription

This podcast has significantly declined from when I first started listening. They are either being paid by Google or are really bad at their jobs. They are constantly pushing inferior Google hardware and software for no reason. I’ve used many of the products they shill and have left them behind because they are so bad or Google abandons them.

Now they decided to assault their listeners by moving the podcast to the bathroom. The echoing and bad sound quality delivering bad advice and stupid takes on current events isn’t cutting it.
