zzzzzeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ,

Normally technology podcasts are dry, this is far from it.

Took a couple episodes to warm up to but you can see they are getting better each time. Content is relevant and gives good insight on what’s coming down the way for business tech. I’ll subscribe and keep hearing what they have to say, what’s 20 minutes of my life?
