Awesome podcast. They didn't read out my review because they said it was too long. I thought about leaving a worse review, but I can't stay mad at these guys for long.

Y'all might remember the movie 'Holiday'? Jack Black, Kate Winslet, etc? A chick flick, I know. A meet-cute is a talking point in that, FYI.

Hey Jason just heard you complaining about the U.I. of Hulu. Have you tried the Xbox one Hulu app? I've used Hulu on other devices but it's a lot more user friendly on the Xbox

As a up and coming younger geekster I found the webcast to be quite informative. The banter between these two geezers is fun and I enjoyed hearing their journey.

It's refreshing to hear from talented folks who have been around the block and who aren't trying to sell you something. Well worth listening too.

A fantastic podcast that lays open the world of technology,the internet, music, science fiction and complains about it. A must have addition to your subscription list and definitely worth a few bucks a month on Patreon.
