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 has ended our hope of a connected, better world. These guys will tell you how it happened; in excruciating detail. It is the one place that calls out grifter tech gurus, gullible Facebook boomers, and despicable tech companies that have turned out to be just another type of robber baron. Keep listening, get off Facebook and listen to the Grumps!
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 talking slow on purpose? Just kidding.. I travel up to the valley on a regular basis, if you guys ever have a GOG Social or something, I’d be happy to buy you guys a beer.. Keep up the great work!
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.
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 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 me on to some amazing services (My wife and I both use Privacy for all our online shopping) I discovered this show a couple of months ago and now I never miss and episode and once we are past the money pit that is the holidays I plan to start donating to the patron or PayPal as well as continuing to listen to the top quality ads!
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!
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!! :-)
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 cause those 120 seconds in the middle of the show make listening to the other 50 minutes of the show all worth it. Grump on!
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”
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!
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 of you as I predate your cultural linkage by way of Lost in Space, Ginger was hot. Sorry I couldn't feed the collective kitty or Jason's dogs, as I am snowed in this year and NASA won't fly me out. // AI Snarky ON Old codgers have remained true to their charter, stay grumpy! // AI Snarky OFF
Informative, funny and entertaining. Cringey at times but its all good fun. Definitely worth subscribing to.
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. Stay GRRRRRRUMPY!!!!!!
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 social media companies and tech conglomerates. At the end of each episode, you come away more informed than most in the world of tech, and just itching to bite someone’s head off from the latest global privacy breach. A must listen, and keep up the great work Grumps! Deliveroooooooo!!
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!!!
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 quality content in a sea of trash
Thanks for all you guys love your Humor in all great news you bring to the show thanks
If you've ever felt grumpy, outraged, or overwhelmed by today's technology, you will see a lot of yourself in this podcast. The hosts go over the tech news of the day, calling out ridiculous trends like the proliferation of electric scooters, and making predictions about the future of technology that often prove true! (Protip: nobody ever went wrong predicting the worse possible outcome for any technology.)
I like this podcast. I listen to it on my daily commute. Its funny, informative, geeky, and for sure grumpy. I usually forget to go back and check show note afterwards, I hope there is a newsletter with the notes sent to my email directly. Thanks a lot guys and stay grumpy.
This podcast is probably the only one I listen to regularly. I hate when they get political, but they seem to realize that we all don't agree with each other and avoid the topic as often as possible. This is the most professionally sounding podcast out there, and they are funny / interesting / snarky.
It starts with a curious press of a button. Before you know it, you’ve grabbed the tail of the dragon. Shout out to Morgan for dealing me my first episode. A witty, informative, snarky, sobering look at the world of tech and what went wrong. I picked up a few episodes back in March. As a glutton for punishment, I went back to episode numero uno and began to binge the whole thing. My commute allows me to polish off an episode or two a day. I cheered at episode 100, was jubilant at episode 200 and can’t wait to reach episode 300. From babies born (congrats) to watching Bam Bam (Brian, drink!) on Jason’s Chinese web cams; I’m hooked. Currently up to December of 2017... miles to go before I sleep.
I am neither old nor grumpy. In fact, I am young and rather optimistic. However, this podcast provides an informative and realistic take on the goings on in the tech world. (At least as far as I can tell. I am by no means what you would call a tech expert). Although Jason and Brian love to make fun of my generation, I apprecaite their insights and humor as I learn more about this world that baffles me.
These whippersnappers moan & graon like they're the ones who typed out Fortran programs on punch cards (after walking to school barefoot in the snow uphill). Serously, this is a great cast about things internet. And for anyone who might object to some left of center opion - sit down & shut up. I disagree sometimes too, but hearing someone out is the right thing to do.
you can't stop listening to these guys. arguably the best dynamic between Jason and Brian out of all the podcast's I listen to. Been listening to them since the beginning and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. For newcomers, check out the early shows...it'll make you appreciate the current, uh..quality of the podcast that much more!
