Beyond the world of Apple, startups, and unicorns there's a whole world of technology used by all the donkeys out there in organizations. That's where I've always had my head stuck and this podcast is my "crank file" of content that didn't fit in the other podcasts I do.

If you like tech and money...
If you like tech and money, then this might be the podcast for you. Very open and frank discussions between a seasoned industry Consultant (Michael Cote, now working in strategies at Dell) and Ed Goodwin (fund manager).
The show can ramble at times, which in other shows is a deal breaker for me, but Mike and Ed (usually) make it work, probably because the information quotient usually remains pretty high. This is one of the podcasts to which I especially look forward.
