Technical and a bit witty too
Tech updates laced with some jargon but always humorous. The presenters provide insights, and with their contributors, there is always something to learn. If you work in one of those networking type industries then these updates will connect you to what is happening in your tech sphere.
Basically, it's Top Gear for network nerds.
Entertaining, informative, a great outlet for the smaller vendors -a bit of a grapevine for the bigger ones.
Back in the day, when we wanted to slag off the pseudo technical vendor led decisions we were forced to implement, we had to do it hush hush. (Near the rack with all the noisy 1U servers were so the corporate bugging team wouldn't be able to record us).
Keep it up guys, if I ever see you -I'll buy you a pint, vendor credit card or not!
Still going strong
I've been listening for years and there's always something new to learn or consider. keep up the good work guys
