Everything You Need to Know About Google...and more

Have listened to the show for a few years now. The regular guests Stacey and Jeff are quite knowledgeable, and as host Leo is great. His general knowledge about the operations of the tech companies and computer hardware and software is amazing. He does sometimes dominate the conversation a bit, but it’s usually because he’s so knowledgeable about the whole topic and he’s talking to others via Skype.
