jchvatal1 ,

Great show for everyone....not just tech geeks.

I've come to enjoy this show quite a bit. They have great chemistry and I usually learn several things in a laid back, no nonsense format. They do a good job of exploring random topics and looking at them in an entertaining and comedic way and their love for the topic is evident throughout the different episode. Overall, a great show to listen to!

This Podcast is the BEST!

This podcast is so good that my wife even listens to it with me! It’s always interesting, funny, and full of good stories and tidbits.

Apechico ,

I did not expected this!

I thought that I was going to hear a couple of nerds trying to explain technology to me. Rather I got well informed guys, sharing about things I did not know that were around and also they were hilarious! Loved it!
