Great Podcast. Bad production.

by Macbook_Pro_Retina on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I love the content of this podcast. But, I listen to most podcasts while running with my airpods. So far, this is the only podcast I've found that has issues with sound leveling. One person will be talking quietly, so I have to turn the volume up. Next person talks and nearly blows out my eardrums. I'm constantly jockeying the volume up and down, which is very annoying. Please figure this out, and once you do, send me a response. I'd like to give you five stars.

Good with Goode

This is such a great fun and funny podcast about the biggest tech news of the week. So glad I don’t need to read the news anymore and that I can just catch up with the jokes and puns of Mike, Arielle, and Lauren. 👍👍👍😘

Too Political

If you’re seeking a tech podcast without an extreme political bent, this is not your podcast.

Needs an Audio Engineer

by eastmankodiak on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The most recent episode released a few days ago only has the audio of Lauren and not anyone else so it’s a lot of silence and awkward pauses.

Great topics, need different hosts

by zdbdc on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The topic selection is great, but I always come away disappointed with the content. Latest example: sleep paradox. Would have loved to hear more about the tech / gadgets rather than the hosts cats sleeping habits. I find the hosts rambling, unfocused, and tedious to listen to.

The best podcast about technology period. I love all the co-host from the show since the beginning.

I'm a New Listener & I Love This Podcast

by vsaltd.jewel on
Rating: ★★★★★

My title tells you I've not had a ton of experience listening yet, but the experiences I have had have been excellent. My favorite episode to date is the one that’s sort of a review of the best tech in 2017. I got a lot of great tips and advice from it as well as an idea for a birthday present for my son! If you don’t have a lot of time to stay on top of tech news I think this podcast is a really good method for doing that!

Love it

Great content

Less is more, and clean it up

by Vox Populi on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

There are some nuggets of good information here but way too much filler and the profanity is jarring and unprofessional. Some younger pod casters are under the misimpression that throwing in the occasional obscenity lends authenticity to their work. But it is like nails on a chalkboard to listeners trying to glean useful information about tech trends. So use an editor, and acceptable vocabulary and you might have a podcast on your hands.

Hey all you broken URL haters...Stop taking it out on this awesome podcast and subscribe like a normal person.

Great stuff!

Rating: ★★★★★

I look forward to Friday's for these guys. Their every week schedule with guest themed shows since the new year has been a nice shift. I'd only ask that they add some news to the podcasts more frequently, if only for a bit at a time, I like hearing their opinions outside of articles. Keep up the good work!

Dedicated Listener

by AngelDeath on
Rating: ★★★★★

I really enjoy that both of the guys don't stop at "This is good" or "This is bad". They actually, with education, say WHY they think one way or the other and what they think the future will be. And I get some really cool ideas or new toy ideas.

Enjoy it Everytime

Love David Pearce, glad that he got away from the Vergecast and found a new home here.

my favorite podcast

by kepler314 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I'm not an early adopter of new gadgets, so for me this podcast is a useful way to stay informed about new things in the tech world. I subscribe to podcasts for information not entertainment, but the hosts of the gadget lab are both informational and entertaining.

For a specific audience

by t.cubed.n on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Audio quality is better than it was a year ago. The podcast is mostly about two person's opinion about the latest gadgets in relation to their work and lifestyle therefore it caters to a very specific audience. Sometimes provides interesting insight.

Really good tech podcast

by Hk9394 on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is one of my favorite tech podcast. They are very good at keeping the topics relevant, topical, and simple for even the most lay person.

It's like soooo annoying and stuff

The vocal fry, like, makes this show like completely unlistenable... like totally.

At last

Finally a tech podcast I can relate to. Their measured, mature pace is a pleasant relief compared to the frenetic programs I normally hear. Keep it up!

Perfect mixture of nerds

by Bill McAlonan on
Rating: ★★★★★

This is just the right mixture of technology, nerd and comity in one pod cast. I love and respect the opinions of these guys and hope for many more podcasts

Just what I needed

by BethNewYorkJew(notmyrealname) on
Rating: ★★★★★

I feel like this podcast really keeps me up to date and makes me sound less like a bitter Luddite when i say i dont have facebook and don't need new technology. At least now I KNOW about what is new and wonderful in the technological landscape.

Great new format

by Garettttt on
Rating: ★★★★☆

Since the reboot earlier this year, the show keeps getting better. Early audio problems improved and the information is more in-depth than ever. Keep it up!

New format is a win, but needs better sound quality

by JorenDahn on
Rating: ★★★★★

I watched the old video version of this periodically, and this new format I think is really great for being more in-depth and more accessible (being audio-only). My only complaint is that the audio quality surprisingly poor for a tech company like Wired - it sounds like it was recorded in a metal barrel!

Big disappointment

by Marco Leavitt on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Audio is just terrible and annoying to listen to. In it’s previous iterations the Gadget Lab was very focused and concise. This new version is just two guys rambling for an hour, much as other technology podcasts do. Definitely a step backwards.

Horrible audio

For a tech podcast to use such poor audio is unforgivable not worth listening to😢😒

The place to go to be in the know

by TechGuyNYC on
Rating: ★★★★★

The Gadget Lab podcast is a great resource for learning about the latest tech products, from phones to laptops. Since the Wired guys live and breathe this stuff every day, you know that you're getting the scoop on the most current products on the market. A must for the early adopter. The format is very casual... just 2-3 guys sitting around talking about the latest tech gear, just like the way most people discuss their new digital camera with their friends.

Good podcast!

Very good podcast. Really fills me in on the latest gadgetry. Could be longer, but why complain? Keep it up
