So Helpful and Fun

Not only do Dave and John know their stuff, they present it in a format that makes it fun and informative without being a tech fest. No droning on with inside terminology that only a nerd would understand makes this a good listen without being a boring basic information podcast. They have helped me in many ways.

Very geeky and helpful

One of my favorite podcasts, I love the topics they cover and the deep dives. Very helpful info! Only reason I’m dropping the rating to 4 stars is the amount of sponsors is getting high (thankfully the ads are skippable) and it’s annoying to hear them fumble though technical difficulties while recording which keep happening lately. Like once in a while is fine but when there are multiple interruptions in an episode just edit it out!
