Wow

In the History of Electricity in Medicine episode, I had to forward over 20 minutes before an advertisement break. I learned about electricity on a molecular level but at that point, not much else. I deleted the other episodes I downloaded because I would rather listen to nails on a chalkboard.

Unbelievable that you blew it on such basic aviation terminology MCAS was implemented to push the nose down NOT to prevent an engine “stall” as you put it but to prevent an aerodynamic “wing” stallDo your basic homework

some humble advice

I really like this podcast, and I would like to provide some feedback.First, there are too many technical details in some episodes. For example, in the episode on the rockets, I do not think we need to know the weight of the rocket and its fuel to so much detail. Instead, what is making the rocket working is more important.Second, we are not a "tech history stuff", I think we should have less histories on, for example, the persons' life or how they interact with each other, those are less important as we are "tech stuff".Thanks, hope the podcast will get better.

Tech Stuff is informative but still entertaining!!!

Though all the current and past episodes I have listened to the biggest surprise so far is that out of GE’s long history, there was no mention of GE’s history in the world wide locomotive industry.

Didn’t even listen. Who is dumb enough to listen to a show from 2012! In 7 years, that whole process has been upgraded to the max. Especially in Tech, old info is ridiculous. I’m moving on...

Loved the Flight Podcast

Very informative. Technically the 4 forces are Lift, Drag, Thrust, and ....Weight. Weight is the force as a result of gravity, but gravity itself is not the force.

Maybe it's iTunes but...

I have to regularly pause my podcasts because I get pulled away. But this podcast always starts over every time I hit play again. Not something that happens with other podcasts on iTunes. when I'm halfway through and get pulled away, I don't want it to start over but I also don't want to miss anything if I just let it keep playing while I'm not listening. Great topics (especially the Circuit City one since I used to work there) but the mentioned technicality is dropping my rating to 3 stars. Fix this and I'll listen more often and give a higher rating.

And the nerd of the year award goes to...

This is the highest compliment that I can pay to this show....It’s written by nerds for nerds. It dives deep into technical facts of so many interesting subjects. It explains them in a way that is accessible and understandable.If you love learning about computers, science, space, robots, programming and all the other cool things going on in the tech world, then this is for you. Jonathon Strickland is a fantastic host with lots of enthusiasm. The back catalog is deep and you can pick you favorites on almost anything.

Can’t get enough!

This podcast is amazing, I love the throwbacks to some older tech and it’s fun to connect the dots between podcasts to see what affected what.

Counts Some Numbers Stations

You obviously don’t get it. Get timely quality, not dated quantity! Info from 10 years ago is dated, and a waste of viewers time. Count me out.

Clownish

I just listened to the show on Spotify and the host’s torturous attempt to explain that pirating of music is not actually theft. His argument: some people who pirated music would not have purchased it anyway. But he naively misses the point that many who pirated the music WOULD have bought it. What a miss.

Stop advertising for IBM

Please Don’t be a sellout. You’re better than that. I really don’t enjoy you pretending to mix in a podcast with what is purely marketing for IBM on a 2 min ad!Update. This really long ad is still playing. Very uncreative. If this is a podcast about “all things Tech “then why are you just talking about IBM for two straight minutes? Talk about your actual show, not one of the once great, now fledging tech companies out there.
