If you miss the Lifehacker Podcast ...

... this is a suitable replacement. Adam brings back many from Lifehacker that you may have enjoyed listening too. Personally, I enjoyed the Lifehacker podcast more because of the numerous guests. I like Adam but sometimes this show is too much Adam - if that makes sense.

This new direction is interesting. Definitely a different vibe, but as a long-time listener, it's refreshing to have some new air let in.
