The best source for tech news

A great summary of the day’s tech news, giving context where needed, and adding just the right amount of personal opinion and insight.

I have a subscription, which is well worth it to know I’m supporting the podcast, even though I’m not interested in the bonus episodes.

Tech News That Is No Longer Torpedoed by Insufferable, Endless CryptoBro Scam Discussion

Update: The endless talk of the next big crypto scheme has finally slowed down. And everything I said about crypto being a scam down below ended up being true, which he realizes by now, and which is why he finally had to stop talking about it. Since his hand was forced in the matter, the show covers normal tech topics now. I can now fully recommend this pretty smartly done podcast for actually staying up to date on tech news, and have adjusted the rating accordingly. Just don’t go back to your old crypto scheme schilling ways- Deal?

Does a decent job of covering tech topics in detail, however his self interest in crypto causes him to shoehorn nonstop crypto talk into every show even though the rest of the world has already figured out it is all a scam and has moved on. Suggestion- Hire an outside editor to remove your inane segments attempting to legitimize the next new dumb NFT/Web 3 scam in each episode before publishing. They could hand back the episode with your crypto rambling still intact, making you feel you’ve done your part to keep drawing in more rubes to lose their money, while the rest of the world is safe from your own misguided crypto cult self interests. Kind of like a self imposed Podcast shadowban.
