I was concerned about a podcast with six hosts, but that concern is unfounded. Everyone voiced their thoughts without talking over one another, a feat, I'm certain.
The audio quality, a big gripe for me, is exceptional.
Tone is unique enough that it has its rightful place on my roster of tech related podcasts. This isn't just another tech news bullet-point chin wag. It's conversational, approachable and inviting.
Shadoe, in particular, sounds like a handsome man, indeed.
At 01:36:00, the first episode most definitely didn't feel as long as it actually was. Most of the podcasts I listen to don't clock in at a feature-film length, but when you have so many opinionated and insightful gentlemen, this is a necessity. And a necessity it was, as I heard various points on topics i felt would be missed on other podcasts with only two or three hosts.
Give it a listen, I loved it.
Shadoe is a handsome man
I, for one, am captivated by his charisma. He's like Marlon Brando and Dan Benjamin all rolled into one.
Podcast was good too.
Six charming, intelligent men chatting for an hour or so? I'll take that break in my day anytime. A dose of tech news never hurt anyone, either.
