Entertaining way to kill an hour

They hate everything about the internet but there isn’t much to be hopeful for so can you blame em?

It Was Time To Show My Appreciation Again

It's been 2 years now that Grumpy Old Geeks has been my go to for making housework less of a chore. It was sad when you guys went to once a week although understandable. Cleaning days are twice a week and you had me covered. It was a hard decision wether to listen to you while cleaning upstairs or wait till later in the week when I did the downstairs. However, the upstairs won as I was less likely to be bothered by my child husband. I always learn something new, often something bizarre, sometimes discover something to add to my shopping list and am thoroughly entertained by the banter between the two of you. The inclusion of Dave B., for security segments (mostly 😉) is truly a delightful experience after one manages to get over all the unnerving information. It's a bit like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde performance. One never knows where those conversations might go. Grumpy Old Geeks is honest, insightful, irreverent and revealing ... it's something to look forward to once a week. Thanks!

Grumpy, informative, professional… ha!

I love this podcast! I find the balance of Jason and Brian to be reminiscent of my relationship with my own best friend and it’s comforting to know that I’m not alone in my grumpiness. If I had a shot of whiskey for every time Jason says “exactly” it Brian says “mmhmm” I’d be dead always. I love the show, I enjoy the insight and appreciate the quality in production! Thanks for many great years of listening. Sorry it took so long to write this review, perhaps like self driving cars I moved the posts a few times.

Always a great and informative show.

Y’all wanted to make sure it works well here it is.

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.

Wow you guys are dorks

If the internet had a porch, you two would be sitting in your rocking chairs complaining about the metaverse while the rest of us are enjoying our blind bliss. You son of a bitch, I'm in!

Amazing show!

I listen a full episode every day commuting. No matter if the episode is from last year, all the shit happening on the Internet still funny. Stay grumpy!

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… cares…about…. Your… reviews.

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 meet up with their security friend Dave at a Furries Convention. If you prefer a more literal description GoG is a podcast with two older techies talking smack, razzing each other, and in between all that dropping in some spot on analysis of the commonly too hypocritical tech space.

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.

Always great, never boring

This is one of the top podcasts that I listen to. Jason and Brian (and Dave) always bring the energy and always give me a reason to laugh.

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 show should definitely have. Not to mention any names here, but certain other co-hosts could learn something and flee the lunatic asylum after all these years and see that there is indeed no reason to hold back anymore. Seriously, you guys are and have been great. Brian you shouldn’t have a problem wiring in once your settled in Canada; it’s not like broadband isn’t better outside the United States (it generally is) and Dave manages to do it even during cicada season. Keep up the good work. P.s. I do miss running into you fools. (Now you really will wonder who wrote the review…) -W who left for Scandinavia, but was too stupid so came back to the US in time for President Orange Stain.

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, brings industry insider knowledge on security going on in the digital world. Last weeks remix of “Dave - I’m Very Grumpy” had me laughing out loud in my car during my morning commute! Keep up the great work guys and stay grumpy!


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 own a Ring camera? Tune in so you can listen to people who own multiple Rings. My only issue with them is that they are sponsored by Blue Yeti Microphone, even though it is obviously the best microphone ever and they use it ALL the time it’s just a little too weird how much they love that microphone. All in all an entertaining podcast by two dudes that wish they could join Clubhouse and dream about owning NFTs.

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 extra bucks as pennance. Seriously though, G.O.G. is the best tech-news podcast out there. Keep up the good work. PS: thank you for ignoring the idjits telling you to stop talking about politics - democracy requires participation, and that means sometimes we have to talk about stuff.

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 uninterrupted. The security segment with Dave is always entertaining and finding out about Dave’s “furry” tendencies justified him being my spirit animal. Keep it up grumps, you’re keeping me sane through this pandemic. Raphael

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 shout outs and geeky apps and doodads, all mixed in with a bit of grumpiness. What I like is that the guys also bring their vast life and work experience into the mix too, making it a lot more personable and relatable than other podcasts. This leads to great parenting tips, stories of obsessive quests to find out if postal workers are jamming wifi and a look into the seldom revealed world or furries and storm troopers. These grumps may have opinions that you do not agree with. This has put some people off, but not me. After all, I have interacted with a few human beings during my life and I have not found a single one that I agree with about everything. Some people complain that they talk about politics, but come on, who DIDN'T talk about politics in 2020 (apart from Donald Trump - he was too busy rage tweeting at 3am whilst taking a dump*). So give this podcast a go and delve into the world of grumpy old geeks. Stay grumpy! *I'm not sure he wasn't taking a dump every time he rage tweeted. Just some times. Do not listen to this show if you are after erotica. I don't find any of the subject matter erotic. But maybe, I just don't know enough about tech.

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 is a podcast for you. They're informative, funny and always an enjoyable listen.

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 — it’s concerning. I really appreciate the content. Thank you! Fine, here’s your star back. I don’t even like hot chip that much, and I’m too lazy to find the episode. If they break up, it’s on you two! I still love the show though ❤️


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!
