Entertaining and informative
You wouldn't know it from all the technical problems they have in the studio, but this is a show about technology. Not necessarily gadgets, but the things that didn't exist yesterday that have been created today and are making our world better tomorrow.
I have been a loyal listener for years and have gotten to know Michael farily well. He is an incredibly smart guy with a wit that allows him to make jokes using an occasional 4-7 syllable word that I have to look up in the dictionary. So, in a sense, I am learning a great deal by listening to his podcast.
Also, you would be surprised by some of the guests he has on the show. Craig Newmark (Craig's List), Guy Kawasaki, and regular Tech-Trivia guest Jay Garmon from JayGarmon.net.
Really good stuff Michael. I can still hear you from St. Louis!
