wow in the would via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/20
Might as well skip to the middle of the podcast, which is where they actually begin. Minutes of ads, a very short intro, MORE ads, then interviews begin. I like most of the content but the format is so horrible I find myself not listening because of how many ads I have to skip are very annoying...Read full review »

The Google piece seemed unduly biased. Odd for a tech/news podcast. I want news and insight, not biased commentary.

Loving the new show. My only problem is that the volume levels of the different speakers can be a drastic change that can cause some issues while driving. Small detail but I love the show.

Why have you stopped including a one- or two-sentence description of each episode? All I see now is a statement asking me to “click here to understand the Ad choices.” I listen to a lot of podcasts, so I have to be selective. I can’t listen to every single episode, just to find out what it’s...Read full review »

Constant intercession of meaningless giggles does not equal charm. Her blatant lack of regard for clear diction together with a seemingly complete indifference to a consistent sound level equals inaudible words in an otherwise irritatingly loud sentence. In short, the purportedly excellent...Read full review »

This podcast is about the ethics of technology and the discussions are absolutely necessary if not mandatory. My respect for April Glaser (?sp) has risen exponentially in the past 1-2 years ago. She has a superior intellect and the guts to challenge the filthy rich “titans of tech”. I was sad...Read full review »

She is so nauseating to listen too, has no idea what she is y’all about 50% of the time. And when she does it’s from a biased position of her deeply left leaning beliefs. So much is her opinion. And man he voice makes me want to jump off a cliff... okaaaaay. This show is just liberal agenda at...Read full review »
Jordanhollins via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/03/19
I generally like this podcast but I’m fairly picky about the voices I want to hear on my headset for more than a few minutes. Certain episodes bring guests on that do not have great speaking voices. This particular guest sounds like she’s whispering into the microphone. As interesting as what she...Read full review »

Great synopsis of what is happening in the news from a technology perspective. Host are knowledgeable and informative and bring interesting information to your attention.

This show is a breath of fresh air. I should know, I'm a true fan.Read full review »
The truest of fans via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/23/19
This podcast is essentially two "tech bloggers" who don't seem to have the time or the inclination to research things properly so, instead, just whine about what they see as the evils of technology. I have been listening for a few months in an attempt to stay up to date with tech news...Read full review »
Thinkindave via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/20/19
Read the 42 reviews (so far), and the positive reviews have covered what makes this podcast enjoyable and significant. I'm in the midst of binge listening, and as others point out, I also feel that the insight, interviews and social consciousness of this show is great. Not sure why...Read full review »

I prefer my shows politics free and should politics is necessary to the show, you discuss both sides. It seems anyone who loves Science would know that.
Liquid 360 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/18
April Glaser is truly terrific, and Will Oremus is also strong. Overall this is well done, very interesting, and usefully informative.
Genegirl1954 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/23/18
Warm and informative.
TOhumble via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/16/18
There’s a lot to keep up with in the tech world. This show goes beyond fawning reviews and looks critically at tech issues.
Mom to Ru via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/18
Good show, miss the old song
ry31415926 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/18
I started listening to the series before the 2018 midterms, and, for the record, I still enjoy most episodes. However, any episodes that sound like a opportunity to be partisan usually are. There’s definitely bias, but on episodes that focus entirely on technology, there’s no such issue and I...Read full review »
Chris.H.1998 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/06/18
This podcast is excellent. The hosts are very well-informed and really take their interview guests to task on important issues from the perspective of social responsibility and consumer rights. April Glaser in particular does not let non-answers or deflections slide. It is absolutely refreshing...Read full review »
Ide via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/18
There are so many stories to keep track of these days. This podcast does a thorough job of compiling the most important tech news. The guests are also fantastic. Keep it up!
HermanDerpstein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/18
I’ve learned a ton of stuff from this podcast I wouldn’t have otherwise known. I think Will & April are excellent hosts and do a great job being dynamic and keeping it entertaining.
SingItBack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/18
..since earlier episodes.
Lddy1765 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/30/18
I was excited about this podcast when I first heard about it. I have been a fan of Will's writing; I was not familiar with April, but really enjoyed her pieces when she joined Slate. I still like their writing; the podcast, not so much. The topics are timely, the hosts know their stuff, the...Read full review »
UTLund86 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/22/18
On top of either lazy or startlingly biased reporting (or both) the value add is incredibly low as the observations made on various stories are shallow and unsupported. I work in tech so I have a background in most of these stories and topics. It makes me sad that this is something people will...Read full review »
altoanthem via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/18
Interesting topics but hosts lack charisma and chemistry. Would prefer casual, free flowing conversation while still being factual. Feels too forced and too news report like.
Muzzie786 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/18
I’m not exactly what I would call a techie. With that being said, I am an engineer so I have a basic understanding of how most machines work today. I thoroughly enjoy how this podcast breaks down a lot of what is going on in the tech industry today and why it matters to those of us not in the...Read full review »
TriRussell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/11/18
Glaser isn't a great podcast host and there's little evident rapport between her and Oremus. Topics are of interest to me, but the content seems improvised, and poorly so.Read full review »
debh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/29/18
Finally a tech show that’s interesting!
Power_cat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/18
Smart, youthful insights into the latest news from the cyber-sphere. Virtually BS-free, but with an admirable human side that reassures us of the possibility of a decent future
Rich in St. Louis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/18
As someone fascinated by the way tech is changing power, society, politics, and the way we live, this is a fantastic show. Great co-hosts. Interviews, in particular, are engaging. I don't work in the tech sector, but between reading and listening to this and to a couple of the Recode...Read full review »
Alexandria, NY via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/18
The best Tech news podcast I’ve listened to. Differs to some others I listen to by having more of a culture/society slant than nuts and bolts “tech”.
jetpackbobby via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/22/18
Listened to 3 episodes of this so far. I’ve really enjoyed the content. They go down paths that I wish more people knew about (internet trust/ policies, etc). My one issue is sometimes April goes 2 or 3 steps further down an opinion path than she should. I think Will is much more controlled in...Read full review »
haifeng via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/11/18
Podcast focuses on technology and its intersection with American law, politics, and society. It's a well-researched discussion about how current technology news relates to American society.Read full review »
Komishan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/18
Stumbling across it rather randomly while browsing podcasts on Apple's App, I have been intrigued with this podcast from the first episode I listened to. April and Will really do give a balanced and well researched insight into the tech world and how it affects every day life. Being based in...Read full review »
flix22 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 06/02/18
Made the implications of tech policy more accessible (and interesting) to me. Love the podcast hosts, particularly April - she is very smart and insightful, and unafraid to state her opinions and the basis for them - so refreshing when so many journalists are either so cautious or alternatively...Read full review »
MsBliss11 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/01/18
I am a regular lisener (via Slate Plus, so I may not show up as a subscriber). Just listened to the Google episode. I enjoyed it, and I learned a bunch. Thanks.
Manuel Noriega via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/18
Why does divisive politics have to be inserted in a tech podcast? Love the tech discussions and insightful opinions on smart home gadgets. I’m learning about smart home stuff and the 2 hosts are exceptionally knowledgeable. BUT... April seems to have to insert her political perspective way too...Read full review »
Tom in Huntsville via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/18
The podcast talks about relevant tech policy topics. But April and Will can do a lot better than boiling most of the otherwise complex issues into overly simplified good v evil terms. Not saying that's what they do in every case, but their opinion on what's "right and wrong" is...Read full review »
AlexL1x via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/18
Two plugged-in reporters snag great guests and analyze the collision of tech and politics. Really fun and requires minimal tech knowledge.
Laylaboyd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/18
This show started off a little bumpy but I think they’ve really found their stride. It sometimes feels a *little* rushed to me, I wouldn’t mind if they extended their conversations by a few minutes for each topic. I think they strike a really good balance between talking intelligently about tech...Read full review »

Super interesting podcast, covers the current tech news and has great guests whom are super knowledgeable in their fields. Keep up the great work!

Finally a tech show that isn’t just interviews but also isn’t just telling me about gadgets most people can’t afford. Good criticism
