Episode 16: What’s Up With That?

(aka Zed’s Dead, Baby)


  • Kyle Rosenthal
  • Brian Bork
  • James Finley

In this exciting episode, listen as our heroes, Kyle and Brian, are joined by their Kiwi friend James and start exploring why Kyle hates airport hotels and exercise. Along the way they discover why Kyle spent a day in Athens. At least what his story is, and why he’s sticking with it.

Along the way, tensions mount as Brian takes umbrage that Kyle may well have taken “The Gadget Guy” title off of him. Don’t miss all the action as Brian shills for Delta, and our merry band of explorers ruminate on the possible tech impacts of the newly-proposed laptop bans on some commercial flights.

Finally, we wrap up with Brian’s thoughts on a micro-projector that has piqued his interest.

Episode 9 — The Triumphant reTurn of Trainers Talking Tech on Tuesdays. Ta-Da!

On Tuesday February 7, 2017 there was a secret podcast┬árecording session with some of the greatest technical minds on the planet discussing the weighty issues of the day. We couldn’t get in to that.

Instead, Brian (No Kyle), and global friends got together over a tasty beverage or two and discuss tech they love and miss, as well as offering up some thoughts on the role of technical certifications in the age of the cloud.

Thank you to Ed, James, Wayne and Don for contributing their thoughts and jokes!
