Description

Technology has been a passion for both of us. We quickly found that out once we started working together. Lunch breaks became an assembly of ideas. We discussed not only emerging technology but how we got to this point in time in the first place. On one of these lunch breaks, without much planning, we grabbed a personal recorder, got in the car, and the Future Break Podcast was born. We're thrilled to have you join us on this wild and wonderful journey... New shows come out every other Wednesday

You should not spend 7 minutes without going into the subject. If you assume your audience doesn't have any background knowledge, I don't know why they are listening to the podcast.
