I think I'm justified in expecting at least one person to be able to string a sentence together without umming, erring, and ahring every second word. Has anyone actually listened to the end result? And are James and Matt B aware of the TH sound at all? Firty, somefing, fousand and so on. It's like listening to uneducated school children and is so appallingly amateurish and frustrating to listen to. For a publication as professional as Wired is, I am shocked this is even allowed to be broadcast.

I remember many, many hours pouring over outdated software code, modifying obsolete dates and retesting systems. The reason there was no global crash at midnight 31st December 2000 was because of several years of hard work by the ICT industry. And today, if we work very hard to contain and manage c19, or Brexit, the naysayers will say, 'Of course, it was nothing - a non-event' grrrr Please remind the listeners that if massive mitigating actions are taken to minimise a threat - it was still a threat! Thanks for making the podcast, really enjoy it.

What the fuck this guy is saying? You just had 8 years of Obama with almost no media bashing every second of every day 24/7. No outcry of billions given to Iran. Drone Attacks. Keep your doctor bullshit. Shut down of Whistleblowers. Disgrace Economy. Massive Foodstamps. Massive unemployment. Ignore of Syria. ignore of Israel. We can go on forever.. This honest guy salute the politicians in good manners buy the real people were fucked hard in the ass. Then came the most inhuman being Trump (according to you assholes) and he benefited everybody and fucked the elites in office and in society in the ass. Fuck this bias scum and this podcast. No stars.

measuring land using football pitches. what is wrong with acres, square metres, etc? why invent arbitrary units? You could at least tell us how many square metres a football pitch is. But do you know? Cheers! (Will)

congratulations on promulgating the most opaque spurious unit of measurement ever: measuring energy output from a power station as the number of Olympic sized swimming pools that can be boiled. Really? What is wrong with Megawatts?

Media and messages from WhatsApp that are backed up to iCloud are not encrypted. So that goes for you and your recepient. if you and your recepient use Android then your messages saved and synced to Google Drive are fully encrypted, not even Google has the keys. End to End encryption is pointless in my opinion unless you're taking every precaution and your recepient is in agreement.

The show needs to be compacted to 30 mins or even 20 mins. Way too much padding. Would be good but I feel I am waisting a lot of my time listening to analysis that is often repeatative.
