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.

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.

Ugh

Too many twentysomethings with extreme vocal fry who don’t know what they’re talking about. And ads are so irritating.
