One of my favorite new podcast finds

This is what I always wanted The Verge or Engadget podcasts to be. Just enough detail without going too far down a rabbit hole. A perfect dog walking listen. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

Great bird’s-eye view on tech news

Ross and Shawn both bring a unique and trusted perspective to discussing tech. Techspansive has become my go-to podcast to not only break down the past week’s tech news - but figure out what it means for the future.
