Best tech podcast for me

My primary tech podcast flor the IT field. If only it didn’t have Xbox stuff. Okay, kidding. Mostly. 😆

Becoming Political - This is a TECH PODCAST

I have been listening for years and even emailed Paul a couple of times. My last email was asking to drop the politics. This is a tech podcast and not a political one. There are podcasts dedicated to that. Unfornately, Leo tends to initiate it and then they are off. I have already deopped several others like The Tech Guy because of this. Now add Windows Weekly to my dropped from listening list. The only one left is Security Now, not holding my breath that Leo won't make it political, and All About Android, which Leo isn't on, from the TWIT network.

Entertaining show but that change in logo is bad

Please change that logo for the show. It really just looks bad. I didn’t believe it was a TWIT show when I first saw it. Then I saw the logo and wondered if it were fake. But yeah that logo should go
