Customer Reviews

Amazing podcast

This podcast is fresh and current and so informed as always with Geekwire. Todd has an amazing presence and I love his sense of humor and wit. Todd and John are unstoppable!

Pretty good, but not exceptional

Geekwire is the main tech journalism platform in Seattle. The reporting is solid. This podcast is above average but nothing exceptional.

If you’re looking for information only, reading the articles online will do you fine. If you want some banter about them, this podcast will also do fine. However, the podcast is too short to go into any real depth on any one topic.

Usually the format is 1) bring up an article headline 2) describe the gist in one minute 3) get the hosts hot take on it 4) repeat 5) end with some random stuff the hosts think is interesting.

Not bad at all. Just not all that exceptional.

Far-reaching Opinion Bias

The subject of new Tech is always a major sidetrack; futurist theory can grab my attention from almost any topic of conversation. Geek Wire has, for years, provided a great forum to listen to with super interviews around relevant, timely ideas and gadgets. However, around the 2016 presidential election, the podcast could not be run without continual, subjective opinion about the show's disdain for not only president Trump, but also conservatives and republicans in general. For a little while, I can forgive the hosts/speakers because the whole media machine made disparaging Trump commonplace, but Geek Wire eventually overwhelmed my ability to overlook their own bias. So I had to find other sources of interest and left the show and podcast. I tried to listen again in 2017, but (as it turns out?) their interview with Bill Gates proved they could not present even the simplest ideas without word-bashing Trump and republicans. By they way, Gates was magnanimous and unbiased in his answers, despite the host's leading questions; can the show follow his example? Probably not. I listened to the last podcast and this most recent one... and again, unless one loves liberal/progressive concepts, their bias cannot even try to be neutral throughout the show. The public forum should be held to a higher standard than average water-cooler or locker-room banter. I'm sorry to unsubscribe one last time. I like Todd; he's a comfortable, nice person. I'm sad that he can no longer be trusted to provide an objective focus on being true to the "old culture" of the show's name.
