Top 1% of Tech Podcasts
I listen to a number of tech and entertainment podcasts and Speaking in Tech is easily in the top 1% of podcasts. The “squad”, as we’ll call them, has a great dynamic and knowledge of the enterprise technology industry. Outside of another podcasts that involves a family playing D&D that will remain unnamed I look forward to this one the most.
Great Podcast! Must listen each week
It's a great source to keep informed about the tech industry by a great and funny cast.
