Interesting material, and the enthusiasm is contagious!
Fun and Interesting!
This is one of my new favorite podcasts - it’s a little rough and unpolished at times, but it’s always engaging and fun, and it’s often thought provoking and insightful. Alex and Savannah clearly enjoy each other’s company and are really interested in the subject matter (I mean, they’re talking about ROBOTS and FEMINISM, can you blame them?) and that makes for a great listening experience.
What a fun podcast! I’m certainly no tech fella, but Alex and Savannah make any tech stuff they discuss wildly accessible. And they weave in a bunch of great pop culture topics as well. Solid guests. Fantastic rapport. This. Is. Great.
