Mesmerizing and informative
I have had the pleasure to meet the podcaster in person through our shared common interest in Tesla. After learning about the podcast project I began listening and was hooked. The content was relevant, thought-provoking, entertaining and well-curated. My two boys and I are definitely looking forward to future episodes of Futurespeak!
Great way to stay update in the latest technology.
I don’t usually pay attention to what’s happening in the world of tech, but Futurespeak Podcast makes me want to stay in the know. The host, Callahan, is engaging, insightful, funny, and the perfect guide to the latest in tech news. In addition to covering tech headlines, Callahan also delves into nuanced considerations of tech’s impact on society. An episode of Futurespeak not only educates and informs, but also piques one’s desire to learn more. Looking forward to more episodes...IN THE FUTUUURRREEE!
