4.9 out of 5 stars from 6.3k ratings
  • Was a long time listener until recently when Jason thought it was a great idea to shoehorn his "Boot Up" program into the backend of an episode. Removed subscriptions to both shows immediately after.

  • Very, very funny

    This remains the only podcast that consistently makes me laugh out loud, every episode. I look forward to hearing them turn their ire on well-deserving targets each week. Highly informative as well, but that’s a side-effect of a conversation between people who know tech inside out. A must-listen.

  • So close to 6 stars

    Would have given 6 stars, but when I paid money on patreon, then added the ad free link to Apple Podcasts I couldn’t tell the ad free version from the peasant version. So I had to delete both and re-add only the ad free version. Beyond that incident, that is obviously not my fault, the show is banging and you should be listening to it. Brian and Jason for president 2024. Make America grumpy again.

  • Great Grumping

    I really enjoy the hosts and their content. I’m about the same age as these two and my career trajectory somewhat follows theirs. I look forward to each Friday and a new show.
