Definitely worth a listen

Lacey's narration is top notch and I highly recommend this podcast to any news junkies or people who simply enjoy good storytelling. The concept is picking up on old news stories, like the success of blackberry, and then following up. Lacey's delivery is very relaxed but it is clear he puts substantial effort into each edition. Subscribe to this podcast and I promise you won't regret it. Also recommend the energy gang podcast that is hosted by Lacey as indispensable for anyone who works in energy or the electric utility industry.
