Citizens of Tech is a show about all things interesting to technology aficionados — not just gadgets. Gaming, science, energy, minimalism, cord cutting, financial independence, etc. We figure that if it’s interesting to us, it will be interesting to you.
This is show #2 in this grand experiment, incubating in the Packet Pushers Community Podcast channel. We’ll run it up to 10 shows or so, and give the show its own channel if we think Citizens has an audience. We saw over 4K downloads of the very first show with some good feedback, so thanks for that! Please keep telling us what’s good, bad, and ugly about the show. We’ll improve. We’re figuring this out as we go.
Citizens of Tech runs in 3 segments. The present (news of the day), the past (our ode to historical awesomeness) and the future (new first world problems on the way).
Please enjoy show #2! http://packetpushers.net/citizens-of-tech-002-electric-space-trains/
With faces made for podcasting, your hosts…
