Fresh and engaging

Sounds like an NPR podcast. Really inviting and engaging, with a unique approach. Great audio quality.
More I listen more I am drawn to it. It is a fantastic as they say “ear candy” instead listening to many alternatives on mass media. Gosh...you listen to a nice voice, friendly back and forth, informed comments and helps feel better. Thank you Same, Same. Keep the good work.

Fascinating, efficient, and fun

Mauhan has got a real winner going. SSBT breaks down technologies that we all touch every day, reminds us how little we understand them, and shows us just how transformative they have the potential to be. The guests are solid, knowledgeable folks and Mauhan does a good job bringing out what they know and slowing them down when necessary. One of my new favorites, for sure.
