Typically good show, some are great

This podcast is informative and entertaining.
Some episodes are OUTSTANDING!
Whenever Amy Webb is on the panel, Leo should keep his mouth shut until Amy Webb stops speaking.
He inserts his thoughts when they are not helpful or necessary.
Kevin Rose was on this episode as well as Amy Webb.
Leo should do the ads, ask a question and let these experts speak uninterrupted.

Used to be Tech, now all politics (liberal left)

I used to listen to this show every week. Now I cannot stand it. Every week it is Leo and friends railing against large companies and Republicans. All of the guests that offered any differing options no longer appear. I unsubscribed.

every name is taken!!!!!!! ,

Listen to your reviewers!

First of all the guests they bring on this show are extremely informative! This is a great place to catch-up with a constantly changing industry. The host though cannot get out of his own way. He constantly interrupts his own guests, makes assumptions for them, and doesn’t listen to what they have to say. I know this is reviewed really well and rightfully so, but I can’t take the awkward sense of supremacy the host has while saying things like “I just really don’t get this” or “is this even a tech story?” while his guest walks him through the impacts of his own industry.
