Tip Top Tech!

I love this podcast! It's a great way to keep up with the major headlines in the world of technology in a way that's fun and doesn't feel overwhelming. We don't often think about all the ways in which technology affects us. All of the issues discussed are relevant, including products and services that we use in our daily lives. Each episode often begins with the hosts sharing what gadgets and games they're playing with, which allows them to describe the practical pros and cons and provide an insightful review. The hosts are knowledgeable and passionate about technology, which always makes this an enjoyable listen.

Tech savvy, geek friendly, and always smart--the Drill Down is a great source for tech news!

These guys do a great job giving insights into all things tech related from new gadgets to current events that are having an impact on how we use technology. I enjoy their varying points of view on the latest tech news, but I also like that I can tell they are enjoying themselves. They keep things fun, easy to listen to, and polite (aside from some occasional ribbing at each other), and they've become a regular part of my weekly routine I look forward to on Fridays. In segments like "What We're Playing With", the guys share whatever they are most excited about that week, whether it is a new computer Andy built or the latest sci-fi movie Dwayne watched or Tosin's latest progress building his own R2-D2. They even made time in their show to respond briefly to a tech question of my own I submitted which I really appreciated. It's no small thing to hear advice of guys who I've grown to respect and trust over the past year or so for their competent and honest opinions. If you love tech and geeking out about all things generally nerdy, I highly recommend adding these guys to your play list.
