A great public-radio tech podcast. A would-be five stars, but with one anoying problem: A five minute show with aproximately O:35 seconds of ads! It's okay to plug a sponsor, but two "underwriters" is pushing it and 0:15 seconds a piece, I'll skip the ads (always the same length) and go to the show. Otherwise, I love it.
Consistently delivers interesting and informative content. A staple of my podcast subscriptions.
Succinct, information packed, and well-produced, the Future Tense series is a podcast I always listen to--and find there's always something within each episode that's new to me or that I understand better after I've listened. Well done!
