Best hour of the week!
I absolutely love this podcast. Been listening since I found out about it on twitter around episode 20. I can never wait until next week's show! Topics range from "chip of the week" reviews to tributes and shout-outs to designers and products of relevant electronics kits, services, and vendors. Special guest appearances by big names in the EE twitterverse. Listen long enough and you might even hear Dave let someone else speak! No, actually he probably just lost his Internet connection.The best hour of the week! (FYI- website is easier to use than iTunes )
Super podcast if you are into electronics hardware projects. I get tons of ideas from them. And entertaining.
This is the best Electrical/Electronics engineering podcast out there! Thanks guys, keep it up and I'll keep listening!
