Brief and to the point.
Spot-on analysis, respectful debates without cynical fanboy behavior, and a concise topic to every episode. A hidden gem in the overpopulated world of tech podcasts. Can't beat the duration either.
inThirty is a really exceptional podcast made by a group of real passionate tech enthusiasts, discussing the latest topics facing technology today. If you are looking for content that goes beyond the common banter found on Engadget or in TWiT than inThirty is an excellent podcast to subscribe to. If you are interested in hearing commentary that addresses the issues that really matter to techies then you would find inThirty an excellent listen.
The conversations are excellent and well thought out. Although only thirty minute length (thus the name lol), inThirty covers a considerable amount of material on wide array of topics.
These three guys each have their own perspectives on technology, so the listener gets several different viewpoints on a topic in one shot. For such a young podcast, inThirty is an impressive, well produced podcast that is worth listening to. I am certain that in time, it will become a big name in tech news.
Fascinating, but could go deeper.
I just listened to the "commercial bowl" episode. Being well versed in media studies and modern advertising strategies, as well as the current state of data-driven content, I was impressed by the host's depth and breadth of questioning and the subsequent commentary. One aspect of the program I thought was lacking however, was a discussion of the psychological effects of advertising, as well as the effects of rampant consumerism among children, adolescents, and adults on a macro level. In future episodes, I look forward to more analysis on the overall value and/or harm each tech-related product and/or service has for society at large.
