Good stuff

Every show has great tips and tricks for us Not Nerds out here so we can indeed “Tech Better.”

No Nerds Allowed

I like these guys. They thoroughly cover relevant and useful tech without sounding like the condescending IT guy at my office. Well done!

Great Weekly Show For Tech News and Tips

This is a great tech podcast for people outside the "tech bubble" who just want plain, straight, helpful information and tips for using everyday technology. They are also the most non-partisan tech podcast on the internet, so there's never worry about it devolving into political jibber-jabber. Their shows are also well annotated, so finding links to the stories they cover or the tech they mention is easy. I would have to say my favorite episode by far is Episode 100 because it features the witty and handsome guys from the Mark and Toddcast. Or Episode 116, which also had one of my favorite guests. Great show! 5/5 would listen again.
