Great tech news podcast

Right amount of depth without each episode being overly long.

Fan Boys at the Journalism Party

Their reporters have the industry access needed to produce compelling tech industry feedback. Occasionally this happens. Feels like less and less though. The show is becoming more of a fan boy hot take on the fantasy of the future, as directed by Silicon Valley, devoid of substantive public interest critique.

Kind of the perfect advertisement for their sponsors, which of course includes Facebook
and the like. But hey, NPR is in the same boat. I guess that makes it journalism. Stay tuned for when they open the show with the birthdays of famous entrepreneurs.
