Best overall poscast for EEs

I’ve listened to almost all of the other electronics related podcast but still consider this my favorite. Something about Chris and Dave’s on-air personalities as well as a large lineup of interesting guest interviews prevent me from getting bored with it. Keep it up Chris and Dave!

Great Engineering podcast

I really appreciate how much Chris and Dave give to the electronics community. I have benefited greatly on a couple of occasions when I avoided a gotcha because of something mentioned, even as an aside, on one of the shows. This is a super valuable podcast, I even like when Chris selves into non technical books because it clearly comes from the heart. Thank you and your guests!

My Favorite

The Amp Hour is my favorite podcast to listen to. I look forward to new episodes being released weekly for my morning drive. I enjoy listening to Chris and Dave chat. The interviews can be hit or miss, sometimes they are not that electronics related. Regardless, this is the best electronic podcast.
