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 to Security Ha. Just got back from vacation 😢 and had 5 episodes to listen to. Score! Keep on grumping!
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 🤪
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 work hard to deliver for their listeners, and deserve way more than they are getting. Great podcast, and always worth your time!
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 recently gave all employees new iPhone Se’s to have their own contract tracing for C19 ... not for spying on them of course 🙈🙉🐵 🤣😂🤣 This is my first apple device, so I’m taking the opportunity to mash stars in overcast and write this review. Chin up chaps and grump on. Marts
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.
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 older web dev who’s still trying to figure out how to make money… So if you ever need a substitute grump, let me know! Brian, good luck with the toddler and quarantine. We have a 3 year old and 1 year old and this is pure torture. Everything will be easy after this nonsense. Also, Farscape is the best and has legs, BUT the 1st and good part of the 2nd season are not great. It redeems itself in the 3rd and 4th and is one of my favorites of all time, but you gotta pay for it… Anyhow, thanks for all the info and stuff you like! Keep grumpin!
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 to every show when it’s published.
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 super grumpy about that! I missed the boat on both! This podcast keeps me chuckling about that fact. Listening from an undisclosed location in the outer rim of Silicon Valley. Thank you! Long live CHILLMEISTER!
Every podcast is informative and fun to listen to while I take a break from griping and moaning about the world.
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 employ and essentials to gather? Move to family or friends before a 2nd mass lockdown?
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 somewhat enlightening to listen in on their grumpy wisdom on tech. Thanks for helping me be informed and for all the tech tips. Keep up the good work and.... Deliveroo
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!
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 two of my brothers 100 miles from our homes, and I love the technology aspect of your show. You should talk about QAM. Microwave frequencies are an unsung hero today. Keep up the good work and I’d love to hear from some more guests.
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 8plus 13.3.1
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 of around 1990). I've been using computers since the timeshare teletypes in my high school math office using yellow punch tape to save programs running the Moon Lander and Star Trek games in the mid-70's. After suffering with all sorts of OSs (especially WinDoze) i finally got my own Mac 15 years ago. Thanks to Jason and Brian for all the laughs and entertainment. P.S. even though i'm writing this on iTunes, I listen via the best podacast app in the world - Overcast (i've tried them all) and star every one i can. LL&P.
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. A true class act and a true pleasure. Thank you gents.
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.
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.
“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. Stay grumpy
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 can. Stay grumpy ? ❤️
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!
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, even though I’m one of the millennials they harp on (though I am an anomaly as my one social media account is Facebook that I never post on). Would heavily recommend to all non-snowflakes. Stay Grumpy
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 reviews
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 the car listening to their shows, and honestly feel that their insights have helped me immerse myself into the world of tech in ways I never quite have before. Their reporting of news, while moderately opinionated, never seems to tell you how to feel about it and instead gives you their thoughts as people that have “been there, done that.” I also thoroughly enjoy their media suggestions such as books and tv shows, and have found myself keeping a list of things to check out after particularly passionate episodes, such as the books “Deamon” and “Freedom” by Daniel Suarez. Keep up the good work and as always, stay grumpy.
