Shallow is the new attention span
There seems to be something about podcasts that reduces everything to the flip, fatuous, and frothy. Punditry rather than journalism. "Tech weekly" has a ghastly Reader's Digest/ Discovery Channel glossy banality to it, impossible to imagine in the written Guardian. Why doesn't anybody do REAL discussions in these things? Try "Little Atoms" on Resonance FM. Come to that, try anything on boring old Radio 4...at least the production values are high.
A good all round podcast
Very goood form guradian unlimited. The panel look at the latest tech news anaylse it. and the discussion is great and there are very intereting
Another fine Guardian Unlimited podcast...
The Guardian podcasts have done it again, this being another supremely well produced and composed podcast to sit with pride alongside the perennially excellent Science Weekly. The below reviewers certainly have some points, for the tech-savvy the content can seem a little light and fluffy, but the fact remains that it makes the BBCs technology coverage look pathetically poorly researched. (Seriously, go and listen to the BBCs 'Click' and see if you don't run sobbing back) Bottom line is that it's an entertaining and suprisingly informative way to spend your commute. Give it a listen, and while you're at it, go subscribe to Science Weekly too!
