Host fruit salad recently

As a several years long listener, I have come to look forward to Zoe Thomas’s chipper delivery and have realized a host needs some time off occasionally. This podcast used to recognize when Ms Thomas was away with a statement like, “I’m Julie Chang in for Zoe Thomas” but recently Zoe is away and a fruit salad of hosts are presenting but there has been no mention of when Ms Thomas might return. She is missed.

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.

Not exactly happy ,

Tech lite sprinkled with opinion

A couple of stars for the occasional insight into new tech or trends. Just need to stomach the opinion or high level understanding of a topic. As an example, disparaging Elon Musk and citing opinions from “experts in disinformation “ and politicians is rather idiotic. Two groups of people that have never built anything.
