Episode #1 is a winner!
Bonnie and Dave, the “tech couple" are very knowledgable about organizational techniques and how to apply them to the your computer environment, Mac or Windows. They speak in a conversational, easy to understand, tone, which is a pleasure to listen to.
The “Dropbox” section is very informative - they convinced me to give it a try.
Give the “tech couple” - a try! ***** Five Stars
