Insight and great tips and tricks

Kat and Rob inject humor and personality into the world of Microsoft 365. Also I love the outtakes at the very end, after the show wraps. Can’t wait for the next episode!

Digging this content

I’m a big fan of business podcasts and I like the setup of this one. They each share something new and cool about office 365 and then interview someone. Kat & Rob were great hosts who kept me interested when the conversation could have detoured into technical jargon land. Looking forward to the next episode.
