We have top men working on it

I listen to Reconcilable Differences every episode and it’s a always a joy. The opening music is my cue that I’m about to be relaxed and laugh a bit as these two talk about life and culture and try to relate to one another. One of the best podcasts going.

If You Can Stomach Merlin It’s Great

I love this podcast because it kind of delves into a lot of the things that make guys the way they are. Never mind the fact that Merlin Mann has a hair trigger temper and is constantly on the edge of offense. What an unlikable guy. John deftly walks on those eggshells and makes the show work.

Reality check-in for Gen-X men

Merlin Mann and John Siracusa allow an audience to listen in on one of their loosely structured conversations every two weeks. Both are marred, have kids and pets and they live on opposite coasts and in their bi-weekly phone calls, they compare notes.This podcast is the perfect salve for anyone fighting to make it work in this economy.

Where the Emotions of Merlin meet the gears of Siracusa

A great podcast where both hosts get to let their hair down and discuss their feelings on what is going on in their lives, either as a tech person, a father, a husband, a man, or a human.

Fraud Recognition Ep

As a person who used to work in the Fraud department for a bank, I can tell you the systems used are very primitive. At least in my banks case, it was known we had outdated systems, but they worked to prevent most fraud, even at the frustration of customers. The reason that department is often overlooked in spending is that the fraud department doesn’t make any money. It is much more profitable to update sales systems to improve profit than the marginal updates they could make to lower losses because often they can charge back the fraud to the company who took the card information in the first place. -listener Clayton

A Very Good Podcast

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I knew who John Siracusa was from ATP and I knew Merlin Mann as the amazing human being who did the post election episodes of the Talk Show, so I thought I'd give this a try. I loved it straight from the first episode (and quickly caught up to the more recent ones). Merlin and John always make me laugh, and their occasional discussions of television shows have introduced me to a bunch of good, good shows that have enriched my life.

Settle down, the adults are talking.

One of the benefits of being a certain age or mindset is that you lose the desire to pander. I love RecDiffs not just because we are of similar vintage but because we see a window into the relationship between two people who genuinely enjoy talking to each other and mercifully have something worthwhile to say.

Great new show from my two favorite podcasters

I’ve been missing Siracusa’s old show, Hypercritical, and it’s great to have him back in a similar format with Merlin Mann.

My favorite podcast

Love listening to these guys. John Siracusa was one of my favorites for his incredibly analytical and objective take on all things technical. Who knew he could discuss culture, emotions, personalities, and daily life with just as much expertise? Merlin’s great fun to listen to as well.

Stop w kid talk!!!! (5 stars)

These are my two favorite podcasters but I just can’t listen to them talk about their kids anymore. I have kids and I’m amazed at how little they have to contribute to the idea of being fathers. PLEASE stops talking about your kids unless you have something interesting to add... and trust me, you don’t!!!!!!! 5 stars Live these guys. Starting to hate the show though. 5 stars
