A thoughtful look at tech trends today
I've just listened to Timothy's first two episdoes and it looks like this podcast is going to be great. Timothy picks great guests, asks the right questions, and then listens (so I can listen too). Can't wait for more episodes!
Thoughtful, Positive, and Enjoyable!
Tim does a great job of asking the right questions and then simply listening. He thoughtfully interacts with the hosts and lets the conversation naturally develop.
His guests have been great, too! They’re the type of people you’d want to hang out with.
Unlike Tech News shows, UNCO stays positive and enjoyable. If you like pleasant, informative conversations about tech with really interesting, informed guests, subscribe.
Smart and straightforward
Tim keeps things laid back and friendly, but he and his guests still come up with hard-hitting observations about the state of the tech world. Especially if you are interested in the Apple ecosystem, this podcast is a must.
