@Chilla ,

A Tech Show for All

Getting geeky, the word awesome definitely describes this show. Covering the awesome tech items of the week with great hosts and great guests.

mat_weller ,

Especially for ‘Burgh folk, but interesting for everybody

Sorg and company are personable, production quality is high, and the tech-centered talk is interesting. Yes, it’s based in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, and yes I appreciate it a bit more having been from there, but anybody interested in fun tech news should at least give it a try. Much love.
