This is the best daily tech news I’ve found. Not only do you get all the news if the day, the host is knowledgeable and provides keen analysis and perspective on the latest goings-on. Just listen. It’s great.

Being a college student and soon to be working everyday it is hard sometimes to find out what happened today in the world of tech and whats important. This is the best podcast I have found to get that summary for each day. I love how he summarizes everything and makes sure not to miss the big points. In addition I love the length. It is perfect not too long not to short just quick and brief with links of anything I want to follow up on! What a great news source! Subscribe now!

Always something interesting

by Jackinthewoods on Feb 11, 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

Brian always has something interesting to report, and often throws in a little snarky commentary to go with it. For someone who’s been in corporate IT for a long time it’s fun to hear how someone who’s been a tech entrepreneur views the industry. The podcast gives me a much broader view of the technology world that I get sitting behind my desk talking to Dell and Cisco rep’s.

Just pure tech reporting and to the point

This is the perfect summary for tech lovers. It to long and not too short and brings you the highlights of the day or important news in tech that is relevant for anyone to know, not just tech lover and enthusiasts.A must listen!!

It’s the knowledge of Tech history that makes the difference

by apv9 on Feb 09, 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

Brian’s curation of what is and what is not important makes his daily roundup the most efficient way to keep up its technology. His great knowledge and long history of involvement in the tech world and his honest no BS delivery is valuable in distinguishing between so many tech podcasts competing for attention.

Beat tech podcast out there!

After reading Brian’s book “How the Internet Happened,” I stumbled across his podcast. Long story short, I am now an avid listener! This is the best short form summary of today in tech - bar none. In addition, the embedded links, especially the long reads each Friday, are invaluable. Keep up the great work, Brian!

I discovered Techmeme Ride Home several months ago, and it has decisively established itself as one of the very few podcasts that I listen to every day without fail. Brian seamlessly integrates the day's most relevant tech news along with the material business context & implications to bring it all together. The result is a solid one-stop shop for anyone looking to quickly and effortlessly maintain the informed perspective needed to successfully navigate and intelligently converse about what matters most in the world of business and technology today!

Excellent summary and analysis for those in tech

Brian’s TMRH is a can’t-miss podcast for me. I enjoy the personal tone and analysis that he brings to the tech highlights every day. Also, over time, you start to pick up on larger bets and themes that he comments on across weeks and months and new developments in certain spaces. So, it’s not just the daily update but a deep and thoughtful education over time. Lastly, I emailed him some gentle inclusivity feedback on a few language habits and he not only made changes but wrote me back in a sincerely grateful way. Good guy and great pod.

I have been meaning to write a review for this pod for a while now (and not because I wanted to be #300.) I first stumbled across Brian while listening to the TWIT network, and decided to give his podcast a try. I’m not actually in the industry, just a tech fan. I find Brian’s reporting very informative with just enough wit and personal anecdotes to make me look forward to listening everyday. My only complaint with the podcast is that its not an hour long, so it would last as long as my actual ride home.

Killin it! Perfect length recap of the days tech news.

Great NO Tech -( about tech related headlines from around the world). I laugh so much because Karole and Clue make fun banter throughout the podcast. Plus I love their British accents !

Quick, Impactful Information!

Rating: ★★★★★

This Podcast gives a very quick and concise update on important technology issues and players. Not complicated financial data, but more a layman's way to know what is now and what is on the horizon in technology. Love the tone of non-favoring of any particular technologies or platforms.

Especially enjoyed your aggregation and analysis of the Mark Zuckerberg piece; your comments around the references to the Roman Empire made me smile and the sentence that started with “at least read the book entitled...” made me actually laugh out laud. Thanks for bringing your and others’ critical analysis to an easy to consume channel. @brianmcc

I just can’t...

by YourSister on Sep 06, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I don’t mean to sound like a jerk, but the host’s speech pattern is pretty irritating. The exaggerated raise in tone at the end of each sentence followed by the excessive long pause before the next makes this podcast unlistenable for me.

Love It!

A great evening wrap up of tech news for the day. I keep up with the TechMeme website during the day, but I still make sure I listen to this podcast at the end of the day on my walk home from work. Just the right length and amount news depth.

Love the podcast which makes my hour commute easier every day. The commentary could be lighter, especially in a podcast that is trying to fast forward through the day’s events as quickly as possible, but overall the content is what I’m looking for. Keep it up!

Top Quality Semi-Objective Tech Reporting

by ypSami on Aug 09, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Brian is a great host and deliverer of tech industry news in a 90%+ objective format. When he does give an opinion, it’s clearly denoted and often insightful.I recommend Techmeme to all of my software engineering peers. Would give 6 stars, but he refuses to enunciate “gif” in a way that doesn’t cause involuntary muscle reactions amongst those that can remember compuserve ;)

I listen to tech podcasts, and brian is a great end of the day. I am in California, so I get it at 3pm, not quite the end of my day, but I hole it until I leave work. A great drive home

The perfect end to the day in tech.

by St. Chris on Aug 08, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

Okay, nobody seems to want to be review #199, so I’ll take one for the team.I have only a handful of must-listen podcasts, and when the TechMeme Ride Home comes out, I interrupt anything else I’m listening to. Brian is the voice I want reading me the day’s tech news: industry veteran, true enthusiast but never overexcited, with a reserved, dry wit — often distilled to a surgically-targeted witheringg inflection at the very end of a quoted press release — that cuts concisely through the corporate hype. And he maintains a running context from episode to episode as stories unfold over time, weaving an ongoing narrative from the inter-tangled threads of the tech world.The Ride Home will save you hours of sifting through the haystack of the day’s tech stories, and give you hours’ worth of weekend reading suggestions if you feel like catching up with the week’s best long-form tech journalism.I never miss an episode. Once you give it a listen, I don’t think you’ll want to either.

I’m a delivery driver for a living. Instead of music that gets stuck in my head, I listen to spoken word content. I’m always looking around 5pm est. for TMRH. Want to know what I missed while I was on the rode.
