    I listen to your podcast regularly in my bluetooth enabled car – your information encouraged me to sort the technology for my daily drive. I enjoy your show and 2 Blokes talking tech also. Thank you for an enjoyable and informative program that keeps me up to date with technology in a useful and low tech way. Love to hear the stories about your kids and how you use technology in your home. The information you and other listeners share help me to keep up with the fast paced world of technology..
    I download the podcasts using the app for my IPhone – this is much more user friendly for me than using ITunes

    Thanks again

    Hi Trevor

    Thanks for producing this local tech program, I love hearing the Australian tech stories.

    There are millions of American tech podcasts out there and they have their place but it is so hard to find a high quality Australian podcasts.

    So glad I found you on Downcast when I had an iPhone and then on DoggCatcher when I moved to Android.

    Keep up the professional broadcasting standard and setting the bar for high quality podcasts.

    Hi Trevor. Thanks for the great show – in live in WA and do a LOT of driving, mostly in areas where there is no radio reception. I listen to your podcasts then, and while I’m not very tech savy, they have helped me to appear to have a handle on tech issues. It’s also helped me use my phone more as a small computer, which of course it is! I’ve ordered the new 6+ and am looking forward to upskilling even further 🙂
    Thanks again and keep up the good work.
