Most of the content consists of the hosts trying to make each other laugh while offering very little insights into the topics being discussed.
Why be in TechCrunch if you don't like tech?
I don't know why I am listening to this. All I hear is "I haven't looked into it", "I don't own a tablet", "I won't be using this and that". Honestly, plenty of people want your job and actually love tech. Go work for TMZ or some blogs.
Welcome to CTRL+T!
Hey party peeps. It's Megan. Thanks in advance for rating this five stars!
