The guys are knowledgeable and have a free-flowing style. The topics are interesting and give a non- fanboy perspective.
The only issue is that they can be too negative towards other pod casters. While a lot of the criticism is on point, the delivery often is quite catty. A more measured delivery would be better.
Love these guys!
This podcast is a perfect balance between super-techy experts and knowledgeable consumers. Super spot on about many issues in my view and they do a great and entertaining job of explaining what's happening in Tech without getting too "in the weeds"... they really know their stuff down to the details(especially Michael) yet explains everything in a light and accessible way that sometimes gets away from "those other tech podcasts".. keep it going guys you're my new Monday morning re-re-refresh! :)
