One of the best tech podcasts out there with one caveat
I genuinely love the Engadget Podcast as it covers tech things that matter in a tone that is not too nerdy but techy enough for most people. One thing that I find annoying about this podcast is this podcast tends to be softer than others that I always have to crank the volume up by several notches before I really can listen to it.
Simply the best
I’ve searched through the sea of tech podcasts and this one has the best combination of knowledge, experience, and real life. They give you the information and real review of tech they’ve handled or are in the process of reviewing. Keep up the great work 👍🏼👍🏼
one of the best tech podcasts out here
I love tech. Whenever a new product comes out on the market, I hope Devindra and Cherlynn will discuss it on the podcast. The hosts review products with great detail, joy, and humor, never leaving you scratching your head and confused. I like to think I learn something new with each episode. Plus, the media and gaming recommendations are the best part of each show.
