Spot on!

IMO, one of the best tech podcasts out there.

Mark has always been at the forefront of critical thinking about humans and tech culture. He's worth listening to - and fun to boot!

IIJohnKeatingII ,

Incredibly valuable voice in our new age

Mark Hurst and his Techtonites are standing guard. As Google and Facebook draw ever near to the latch of Pandora’s box, Mark is one of few voices crying out ”No!” The question is, will you listen?
