My daily tech catch up

I am not in tech but love following tech news. Brian’s podcast is my daily vice. It’s in my not-not-be-missed category and an inherent part of my otherwise dull commute. Love new addition of weekend interviews as well. Overall it’s a great combination of news, opinions/takes and occasional tech rumors.

Great tech news podcast

Continues to have the hallmarks of a great tech news podcast. It covers relevant news, is interesting and provides suitable depth on tech topics. Compared to numerous other tech podcasts, there is not too much fluff and chitchat. Also the tech research is not too shallow.

Uneven and Opinionated

It’s easy to tell which products the host uses based on the quality and quantity of coverage. The podcast is anti-Apple and pro-Amazon to the point of bias. Also, he gives Google and Amazon a pass while bashing Apple and Facebook for the same activities. Also, seems to throw Apple into a list of companies doing a questionable activity (say privacy violations) when they make a point to not do those things. Like fingers on a chalkboard every time I hear it.

Also, whereas analysis is frequently necessary and welcome, he feels the need to pontificate every episode. I can decide for myself what to think about the news, don’t need someone to tell what to think or feel. He is at his best when he covers the news and provides some basic context, and even a little reading between the lines, but he goes way beyond that at least once a week, to the point when I can tell it is coming on I advance the episode to the next story.
