Unique and informative

Tech News Briefing covers the tech business and how tech affects and will affect our lives. I subscribe to quite a few news podcasts. I don’t always listen to all of them because it can get repetitive; TNB is a must listen because it has info and perspective that none of the others have.

Sounds like for teenagers.

Can you get some adults conducting the show?

Good content, not a fan of 2x daily

I don’t know why so many people hate on the hosts or hate on their commentary. It’s called news, and anyone, including Elon, can spout disinformation. Anyway, you all are doing a good job. Don’t listen to the haters.

As a constructive critique, please revert to once daily. I never listen to the second, minute-ish long episode. There’s not enough content to be useful in my view. Anyway, keep up the good work.
