I've been in the AV integration field since 2006 and I'm still learning about the ever evolving world of technology. Nate and Jason put on a great Podcast and provide a great service to the AV industry. THANKS GUYS!! Good work!
Good content, too long winded
Overall, the actual content in the show is good. However, I feel the host spends too much time talking at the beginning. It isn't until 5 - 7 minutes into the podcast where actual AV related content starts. The host should spend less time with introductions and summaries, and instead should jump right into content.
The AV content of the podcast is good. Topics are informative and entertaining.
Nate is Great
I love this show.
