Tech Talk That's Real
I truly enjoy listening to your podcasts! I like how you break down technical issues into simple concepts that are easy to understand while staying on point, not drifting off into a five-minute side story. You cut through the fluff and stay focused on your topic. Each time I listen, I walk away with something new I can apply to my professional tasks at work and/or my tech issues at home.
For example, Episode 5 discusses Google Analytics. I think adding a podcast guest with this specific expertise is exceptionally helpful. Yesenia Sotelo's answers to your questions are clear and easy to follow. In my work environment where the word "analytics" probably would make some dart into another room, I welcomed the so-called "listening journey" Yesenia took me on. She walked me through some how-to's and why certain statistics are more important than others.
Keep up the great work!
