Very entertaining and informative. Pogue is a great presenter (despite his deliberately dad-jokey style) who weaves a great tale around every subject.

I've learned so much from this podcast! Every episode is interesting and well researched. I'm a big fan of David's story telling style. I recommend it to everyone. Please tell me there will be more seasons!
