I've seen/heard both of the hosts on other things, Roger from his days at TechTV and Tom from various CNet podcasts. And while they don't always get as geeky here as they do in those places it's still fun to listen to them, especially when they go off on tangents. R U Listening?
General talk for nerds.
I really like that East Meets West covers a wide range of subjects, but maintains its geeky slant on the topics at hand. I look forward to listening to this show every week.
I had no idea that Merrit did another podcast...
