I ditched listening to podcasts for ages, but thought I should really start again.

Started with the NZ Tech Podcast from this week.

Good stuff.

I used to but only really have time for 1 podcast a week now (driving to work less often) so choose to listen to Steve Gibsons Security Now podcast.

I've listened a few times, but it is quite long so I dont usually have the time unless one of the topics particularly peaks my interest

I listen to it every now and then, when they have a topic that I'm interested in. But I find it quite long and I fast forward through the bits I'm not interested in.

I listen in sometimes too ;)

Have to agree with comments about length. Therefore we're making a real effort for 2013 to keep most episodes a chunk shorter than the 1+ hour episodes we ended up with last year. There may be some exceptions such as our final compilation of interviews from CES, but in general we will be targettting 45-mins or so.

Also, any and all feedback, topic suggestions, guest suggestions, etc is encouraged via the 'team' email address (

And a special thanks to everyone who does listen in each week. We have some new guests lined up in the episodes ahead that I think will be interesting to hear from first hand.

Also, worth mentioning that if you missed the CES episodes there is (or so I'm told) some fascinating one-on-one discussions mixed in there.

I did listen to it once, I think there was some talk of Ipad Mini and I was interested in that at the time. As I have not been logging in via the home page and going directly to the new forum posts I have not really seen what is on offer, however after seeing this post I can see something about 4G so I will listen tomorrow morning before the rest of the office gets in.

I enjoyed the one with Dai Henwood last year. I like him even more, now I know that he's a 'techy'!

I listened to it once last year (when this thread was posted), and am listening to it again today. I wonder whether I'll remember to keep listening this time around :)

Length was a problem for me, I got half way through and struggled and with such huge time restraints, I am really only interested for about 15-30 minutes.
