A Top enterprise networking podcast

You won’t go wrong adding first Packet Pushers’ network break as your first stop of the week for all things enterprise networking. Hosts are well researched and experienced, running through the stories of the week. The other shows are great too and more theme-specific.

Greg’s “Fart” and “Centaur” Metaphors Earn 5 Stars

First NB episode of 2023:

Been listening for years, great podcast, great group of gents. Keep ‘em coming! 🤘🏼
