New narrator please

tl;dr: Great info, bad narrator.

I learn a lot from listening to this pod. Sadly the narrator’s voice is so abrasive and robotic. Sounds like a bot from 10 years ago. Hard to listen to. I may unsub soon because it’s too painful. Can we please get Kai Ryssdal over here?

Extreme Biased

This would be a great podcast if it wasn’t extremely biased. Just listened to “The Privacy Flaw Threatening US Democracy” and it was literally all about how bad Trump would be if re-elected in 2024. Have we forgotten how the current President with Obama was caught spying on Americans for years. What Snowden disclosed doesn’t even scratch the surface.

Too much opinion, too little news.

Between politics and social issues, I originally subscribed to wired magazine for tech information and news. In time it was really obvious Wired was pushing their political and social justice views under a layer of tech related topics. That’s fine. That’s their choice, it was my choice to cancel my subscription.
I was hoping this podcast may be different and more about the tech. The second episode I listened to was right back to their woke views. I’d rather find just a neutral(ish) information resource. I will unsubscribe and look elsewhere.
