Two guys who like to talk tech and ramble about anything but mostly technology related. We love hearing from listeners about new episodes or those who want to hear our opinions. We want to create an engaged community where people interact, get to know us, and help us improve the podcast! We aim to post at least one episode weekly but when feeling rambunctious we will crank it to two-three!
