Older and grumpier

Sage advice from two travelers still on the digital journey. Listen and learn. Too bad they are old enough to remember programming in Fortran and GRID laptops that had a total memory of 362K.


Great show

Wish I found it sooner. This show is my podcast of choice on my commute day every week.


5 stars

5 stars for c&$ty mc c&$ty a lot


Friggin’ Sweeet

This show is great. Strike that, it is fuuu .. uuu .. uuu .. uuucking great. It is as advertised, and always entertains. Grumpa-lumpa everyone!


Why are peoples feelings so hurt

Great show as long as you have a sense of humor and don’t live in your mothers basement. Jason and Brian not only take trips down memory lane but also stay current on actual useful information in tech. I constantly look forward to my Wednesday drive. And to the one star hero’s out there…. No…. One……


Hey You Kids Get Off Our Tech Lawn!

Description for this Podcast Tin GoG is not powered by AI nor ML and is certainly not a Crypto Wank fest—it is just a solidly snarky time from two older Tech Guys who both totally swear by, no scratch that, swear about the Blue Yeti microphone! GoG is like The Kominski Method and Silicon Valley …


Best Tech Podcast

Brian and Jason (and Dave) always deliver great content, and make sure not to take themselves too seriously. Each episode is informative, but also there’s lots of laughing along the way. I always look forward to my Wednesday commute to work listening to the latest episode.


My must have on wednesdays

Entertaining, informative, helped me through 2020, me not being a tech-girl I learned a lot and had as much fun. Thanks guys and keep going


Not nearly grumpy enough

Look, I’ve actually met both of you. Snark is in our blood, but somehow I managed to escape LA (Santa Monica) back in 97 and my cynicism grew while yours only seems to have festered. Brian’s leaving for another county (like I did) give me great hope that he might develop a level of callousness this…


Looking forward to the show every week

I love the take the grumps have on news & tech every week. I always queue it up at the top for my Wednesday morning commute.


Great Podcast

Do you enjoy the two old guys from the muppets, that sit up in the balcony and heckle the stage? Boy! Do these guys have a show for you! They sit upon their podcast balcony heckling the tech world with an unfiltered wit. My favorite is the security portion with Dave. Dave, an unapologetic fury, b…

Had to download this app to leave a review.

I started listening to these guys 2 years ago and I look forward to each new episode. Do you love Google Chrome? So do they, a lot.. probably sponsored by Google. Are you a fan of Elon Musk? Not a big a fan as these two. Want to hear all the good news about crypto? Well, these are your guys! Do you…


Exactly the Right Amount of Snarky

Confession time: I've been starring each episodes in Overcast from the start... But that's not enough - I want to live in a world where artists and journalists are able to make a living from their patrons - I have no excuse for not signing up for monthly donations before today - I added a couple ex…


Great show

Been listening for a while and look foreword to hearing their opinions on things happening in the in the tech wold. I don’t always agree but it is an interesting take.

Elon Musk's favorite podcast


Best part of my commute

Long time listener first time reviewer. I’ve been listening to these two grumps for a little over a year after hearing about them on the Cyber Wire and it’s almost scary how right they are. Every Wednesday I look forward to my commute home since I can generally listen to the entirety of the episode…

I love these guys. It's a grumpy slice of life every Wednesday to break up a day of me trying to explain science to people with varying levels of success and frustration. They throw in a bit of everything - geeky books, geeky TV shows, geeky news, geeky security (or maybe just security?), geeky sh…

I began listening to these guys because of Jason’s connection to The Jordan Harbinger Show, and because his advice helped me secure my email account from constant hacking. If you’ve ever complained about Facebook, have strong opinions on Star Trek and Star Wars or are a fan of technology, then this…


Truly grumpy, sometimes concerning

They truly are grumpy, and that’s a good thing. The topics they cover on the show are always entertaining and thoughtful. Please also keep the Star Wars segment going with Dave. Four stars until Brian explains why he hates Hot Chip — I’ve listened to the show for years and I still don’t know why …

Freaking love you guys!! I just found the show at the end of 2020, crazy year. I’m part of the GOG family now. Keep up the good work thank you! Best Pod ever! Love BITcoin, hahahahaha.

Extremely entertaining and informative podcast

These guys are like my grandpa if he was technology literate. They are informative and give you their opinions without any sugar coating. Extremely entertaining and the best podcast I have been put on to in years!


What a great show

I have been listening for the past 2 years and I love it. There is something for everyone. They bring great news and they discuss. The audio quality and production value is outstanding!!! I do not know how anybody can give less than a 5 star review!


Perfect. (Almost)

Ticks all the boxes. Disgust, right on point. Sarcasm, not nearly enough. (Yeah right!) Politics, piss off if your views don’t match my own! Tech, enough to keep the title. Security news is the most helpful, especially when giving macOS upgrade advice. Right, Dave? Thankfully, these dummies m…


My favorite podcast

Thanks Grumps!


Look forward to it every week!

Need someone to bash every tech idea that's out there? This is the show for you - negativity at its best (:


A few last f*cks to give

Yeah, f*ck you guys. F*ck you guys. F*ck both of you. F*ck both of you. F*ck you Jason and f*ck you Brian. F*ck you both. F*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you. I don’t like to curse, you know I generally don’t, it’s generally somethingI don’t want to do. Let me just say, without reservation: f*ck you guys.…


The Podcast we need, not the one we deserve

Need a reminder that it’s the world that is insane, not you? Join these soothsayers as they weekly (in ‘Precedented times’ more frequently) highlight tech and security news interspersed with the right amount of media news and nostalgia. The banter, rants, and news make this a Podcast that’s well…


Everything I want from a podcast

Funny, nerdy, well-produced, opiniony. I look forward to this podcast every week.


Excellent perspective

The PI 400+just shows everything goes full circle. Remember the commodore Vic 20, 64 and Amiga 500? A keyboard with all computing built into it. When are we going to see the return of the 5 1/4” floppy? Just sayin.

An eclectic collection of tech, sci-fi, and life

Jason and Brian offer opinions on everything from sci-fi fiction, movies and TV, life in Southern California, and how the tech industry has gone to hell in a wicker basket. If that doesn't catch your attention enough, listen to how Jason is constantly digging himself out of a finanacial hole or pu…


Don’t die Jason

I’ve been a listener to pretty much every episode for a couple years now and really enjoy the show.. I’m sad to hear that they are only doing one episode per week now (I understand though) and am pulling for Jason to stay alive.. come on man!!!! Also I love when Dave comes on the show to talk about…


Funny, irreverent, informative

This is one of the two or three podcasts that I always make time to listen to every week. Even during the pandemic! Despite no longer having the commute + walking that was my dedicated podcast time! The two cohosts of the show do not suffer fools gladly. Their down-to-earth reviews of tech, tech …


Most Entertaining Tech Podcast

Have been listening for years. These two bring a much needed sense of reality to tech news and life in general. I look forward to the shows every week. Keep up the excellent work!


Keep on keeping on

Oddly enough I discovered y’all whilst in jail and I’m now hooked! Love you guys real ness!


Calling the industry out on its crap while giving credit where credit is due

A comprehensive and critical take on the technology industry presented with much-needed grump humor, because if you can’t laugh at some of the crap going on these days, you’ll just go mad. It’s not all negativity, though. They definitely give credit where it’s due. I just wish it was due more often…


You’ve gotta fight for your right to be grumpy!

Just started listening to you guys this year, and I’m surprised it’s taken me so long to find this podcast. I love the insights and recommendations, and the fact that you two, while similar in many ways, disagree on many things, too. Thanks for all you do; looking forward to becoming a Patreon sup…


Great show

I am a HVAC mechanic and work by myself so podcasts and audible are how I get through my day. Even though I am not a tech person I enjoy the show. I get great reading and media tips, plus it’s fun. Can’t wait to hear about Brian’s love for scooters.


Great grumpiness!

Love these guys. Love the banter between them. I always put them at the top of the list when the show arrives. Security Ha is one of my favs as is the library. I have gotten some great suggestions and I even tried some they stated weren't good (and they were right!) Dave Bitner is a great addition …


🔥🍟

One of my favorite shows. A lot of great info; and you’ll find yourself talking back to the speaker 🔊 in agreement or disagreement. —not that they can hear you. Luls 🤪


Still great

Fun fun fun! Jason & Brian deserve a major talk show!


Great Great Podcast

I stumbled upon GOG about 7 months ago and their new episodes quickly became my most anticipated They offer a great discussion about how tech is invading our lives, but do so in a fun and light-hearted manner. Once things stabilize I will be throwing my money at these guys, because they really wo…


grumpy old geeks awesome

This is quite simply the best podcast... period. Any detractors can just go jump in a lake. A perfect blend of topical, political, financial (well once you bring back the stock stuff) and good old grumpiness. My week is sad in between the shows and euphoric when a new one is dropped. My company …


Frustrated Incorporated

Fun banter by some grumpy tech dudes. Love hearing them vet and tear down new products. I pictured Brian as a bald dude, it appears he’s exactly the way a dude making websites for the goo goo dolls in LA should look. More nostalgic tech references and AI tear downs please.


Grumpy too

Hey Grumps, I started listening to your podcasts a few months ago. Been loving it! When I told my wife that I was listening to this podcast, she laughed, and laughed… and laughed… Then proceeded to say “That’s you!”. Yep, I have a Grinch ornament dedicated to me on our Xmas tree and I’m also an…


Great show and appreciate political commentary

These guys are great frankly. While some (obvious) trump supporter whined, the hosts are only talking about the most obvious. I was actually wondering when they would start simply confronting the facts (not alternative facts but real facts). I think they did a great job without question. I listen …


Long live chillmeister!

For the longest time I thought his name was Brian Chillmeister! So awesome, my mind will never stop hearing it that way. Started listening a few years ago when Jason low-key plugged it on another podcast it. Been hooked ever since! Im class of 2000: too young for web 1.0 too old for web 2.0 and Im…


Tech Never Felt So... Grumpy?

I look forward to every episode! Jason, ever tried a Florida Woman?


Fun ride

Every podcast is informative and fun to listen to while I take a break from griping and moaning about the world.


Tech w/ Snark!

Tech tech snarky tech. I’ve been listening to and recommending this pod for years. GOG’s healthy skepticism of Big Tech and refusal to drink the cool-aid keeps them ahead of the curve again & again. Love to hear their thoughts on possible Quarantimes Pt. 2 in the fall. Are there new strategies to…


Best Tech Podcast with Grumpy Humor

Been listening to these guys since 2016 and I’ve enjoyed almost every episode! Jason and Brian are reason I feel like I have somewhat of a decent knowledge of whats going on in the tech world. Especially when they discuss the news with their banter and grumpy humor. I’m in my mid-twenties and its s…


Too good to be true

How to perfect a podcast. Listen to the pod heads of pod heads.


They’re grrrrrrrrrrrrrrumpy

I’m grumpy, I’m old, I’m a geek, and I’m in good company. I look forward to each new show that pops up in my feed. Since I often work alone I enjoy listening to you guys “talk shop”. Keep up the good work and stay grumpy!


Huge fan

Excellent tech info with a twist! Love it


Horrible!

Made me stop listening to all other podcasts. Now I am so addicted I had to restart on Spotify and I’m on #40. I listen to you guys when I drive a van for amazon. Every days extreme workload makes me feel like I work for Walmart, but you two somehow manage to make my day. I also run a WISP with…


Wow what a great podcast!

This is the best podcast ever. They provide so much fresh incitement to the tech world, side tangents and other interesting topics. They are my go-to podcasts. 5 stars! Would recommend do everyone. PS , podcasts app is.. eh. Can’t “lookup” in the copy/paste select menu. 12.4.5 iPad mini and iPhone…


Dope.

Dope.


One Of My Go-To Feeds In The Morning

I only discovered this great podcast a year ago and it quickly became one of two default podcasts to start my morning (the other being Never Not Funny). It's concise, funny, and informative. I'm a bit older but i still share most of their cultural references (except recent music which i lost track …


Proof I’m not alone

I may not agree with some of the political opinions of the hosts, but I can agree with most everything else. This is by far my favorite podcast and has been a highlight of my week during some really rough times. The balance of news, commentary, tech and occasional politics (tech related) is amazing…


Team Grumpy

Papa Bittner pointed me to GOG a few years ago and now I am a full member of team grumpy. Thank you and keep up the great podcast.


Best grumpy tech podcast ever

These guys are great. They don’t just grump about tech, they grump about everything. As a 66 year old, I can dig that. I listen at work, where I grump about everything, too. Grumpiness is wonderful. Even the ads are great, though no one cares if I manscape or let nature run wild.


Episode 1 Lolz

“Can’t believe all Apple is making is a watch” , of course “oil will always be oil” thus Exxon having a higher market cap than Apple, where’s your Google Glass, Bryan ? Have only been listening since 2018 but dug out the original fossil. You guys have been killing it for years and please keep going…


Great show! Also testing slack integration!

Testing to help out the podcast see if they get the slack notification! Also: These guys are fortune tellers! They humorously illustrate how over optimism in tech can be dangerous or just plain entertaining. It's good to get a cautionary take on tech, security, and pop culture. Keep on grumpin’!

Favorite tech show, hands down. Hosts are extremely responsive to feedback and (more importantly) knowledgeable about the field. My favorite episodes are the Saturday shows, especially the Security Hah and Apps & Doodads segments though I do listen to every ep that comes out as soon as I possibly c…


The only tech podcast worth listening to

I love Manscaped! When you get too furry, clean it up in a hurry. Also, Jason and Brian are pretty cool too. Just give it a listen already!


Hours of entertainment

Started listening to this show cause it sounded interesting and made the half mistake of listening at the beginning. While audio quality was bad, kinda fun to hear how bad the all iot companies were “great”. Can say the newer episodes are a lot better and I do agree with a lot of what they say, eve…


Grumpy OG’s

The best podcast whose site ends with .show - now at less than half the cost of the closest competitor! Features include: - grumpy - ragging on e-scooter morons - ragging on C-suite morons - debating what makes a technology company - advice on grooming your nads - furries - shout outs for funny r…


Perfect tech show for the new and old

I started listening to this show a couple of months ago and have been working my way through the backlog of old episodes. Even though I am new to the tech field and almost 20 years younger than Jason and Brian, I still relate so much to many of their themes and thoughts. I spend a lot of time in …


Grumpy, Furry and Geekier than You Can Imagine

The header says it all. Listen to this podcast or the Fur Mafia will find you :-)


Best tech podcast

This is a very enjoyable podcast that keeps me informed on the latest trends in technology. I really like the cybersecurity discussions. Stay grumpy! Jeff W


Best Tech podcast Gen X Available

Fun and easy lo learn, even easier way to get up to date about the Tech news


Great Tech podcast

I don’t consider myself old but I do find myself completely identifying with these 2 geeks. Great podcast to keep up with what is going on in tech. I have a 3 year old “turdler” at home and have found myself sharing many of the same frustrations and concerns with Brian when it comes to kids and te…

My favorite podcast by far. Top-notch audio quality, great chemistry with the hosts and solid content on a reliable schedule.


A tech podcast so good

I downloaded the Apple Podcast app just to give them a 5 star review!

Authentic, raw, tech (social impact & security), sci-fi and pop culture driven and most of all GRUMPY! I love this show!


Something To Look Forward To

Housework is not the most invigorating task especially when you've done it for decades. However, it's a perfect time to put on a podcast and scrub away. This podcast covers a lot of topics while still giving one a good peek under the sheets. There are issues covered that I would never have come acr…


Best Gen-X pod on the net

This is probably the best podcast for Gen-Xers if not everyone. Without a doubt we have all lost our starry eyed view of the internet. If your a Gen-Xer you embraced the internet but being a product of a divorced home, you know that all things come to an end. Well, we’ve all seen how the internet h…

Grumpy Old Geeks is a twice weekly tech show that I love. Jason and Brian break down what is happening in the tech world and acerbically discuss what they think of it. While they are grumpy as the title suggests, they are also funny and you can tell that they really love technology.


The only podcast I listen to religiously

Love this podcast, keeps me current on everything going wrong with technology, so I can be that guy when I’m out with my friends.. Just upgraded to macOS Catalina, and checked out the new Podcast app, and listened to your podcast at regular speed for the first time in forever.. Are you guys talki…


Lame

The show is kinda lame but worth forwarding through boring chatter on technology and news to get to the brilliant ads, what a strategy it keeps me hooked. Especially the ball shavers - those are the best. I. Even give them money each month to hear it! Keep it Groomy.


A delightful podcast from a couple GenX geeks

Smart guys? CHECK FUNNY? Check Jokes about old computer stuff? CHECK A great podcast and I giggle at the ads because sometimes ball jokes are funny.


I LOVE THEIR ADS

I actually had to reinstall apple podcasts just to leave this review but seriously screw that guy who left the 1 star review because the ads were “an insult” not only am I happy to listen to some ads to support the great content that is provided for free twice a week but some of the ads have turned…


Where Do I Begin!!!???

Love these guys to the depths. They say what I am thinking, and are funny to boot! This is a guaranteed soundtrack on my daily commute to the Napa Valley! Keep it combing gents!


Great show!

Really is the best technology show out there. Excellent combination of laid back fun with tech nerd dashed in which makes for easy listening. And the ad strategy is amazing!! :-)


Ads are great

I give this show 5 starts simply for the amazing ads. They have helped my network stay private and virtualized. Helped me get fresh meat delivered to my door, and never has my manscape been so manscaped. The other segments of the show could really use some work. However I can never unsubscribe caus…


Great stuff

I wish I’d found this podcast sooner. The guys are great. The episodes are very educational & informative! Keep up the great work! “Snarky Comment”


So Grumpy So Good

These two are the Statler and Waldorf of technology. I anxiously await each episode to hear what I should be upset about next, can’t get enough!


Keep it up

Love teh show. Thanks so much for a solid tech cast.


My meager payment and indignant review, so smile-UPDATED!

Would have rated the show at six stars, less one star as I had to leave a snarky remark/comment--consider a 5 of 6 (Next Gen) and a MeatSpace score of 4.755. Guess I wil just have to go to the website, what is the address again? Knowing you're both Sci-Fi buffs/fanboys I guess I am older than both…


Great Podcast!

Informative, funny and entertaining. Cringey at times but its all good fun. Definitely worth subscribing to.


Grumps, not chumps

I look forward to each episode! These guys are an excellent addition to your podcast lineup. The show is well organized, and prepared. Br(y/i)an and Jason tackle tech news like true grumpy old men (because they are). I am glad I found this show and will continue to listen as long as they stay on. S…


Funny and relevant

Listening to these guys banter back and forth about the week’s tech news is like hanging out with your own geek buddies at the local bar. They’re funny and crass, yet witty, and always entertaining. Each one is more miserable than the other, but they always get joy in the misfortunes of major socia…


Great show 7 out of 5 would recommend !

Grumpy news, interesting topics. From technology to “politics”, Jason and Brian will keep you up to date with what’s going on in the whole interwebs and more. You won’t be disappointed by their great content they will always deliveroo!!!


“GOG”

Racists? No.


Finally a real show!!!

Grumpy or not, very entertaining show. Stay grumpy my friends.


Excellent

I am nether old nor a geek but I am grumpy. An excellent show to listen to if you want to keep up with the tech and media news. Makes for a great listen during my walk to school or when I’m smoking my pipe to relax. I’ll hop on the Patreon when I get a real job. Thank you Jason and Brian for quali…


Drop it like it’s hot

Not so grumpy but very entertaining.

More like very blunt middle age men.
