Great for ride to work as well
Engaging, current, well written, and well produced.
Great for daily tech news
Well done tech podcast that feeds nicely into my busy schedule.
Brian does a great job at bringing up the points to pay attention to and his recommendations are on point.
Great podcast to listen while driving
It's a perfect podcast to hear all the tech news on a weekday while driving! Getting all these news that I don't need to check social media for these news! Highly recommend!
My Go-To Podcast for Tech News
Brian provides the quickest rundown of today’s tech news, adding valuable input and quips when needed. The weekend long reads and special episodes are always a bonus and bring good variety to the show. Our entire team at work listens in on the daily.
Candidly, if Brian leaves the podcast and brings in a guest host, I tend to cringe for 20 minutes while listening, or skip the episode altogether. That’s how good Brian is. Don’t do that again, Brian. Thank you.
Great way to keep up with what’s up
Worth my 20 minutes every day.
Also enjoy the weekend bonus episodes, and the long reads. Thanks for the updates and suggestions!
TV Movie Junkie
Quick and informative
Just the right amount
Love this podcast. Gives the listener a quick taste of what’s happening in the tech world. Not too long, not too short.
My daily download dosage
I love the fast pace tech news format. As a 47 year old Gen Xer that works in technology, I like the “headline news” feel I get with this bit of daily info. Thanks for the great work and keep up the fantastic job!!!
Quick, informative and to the point
I listen every day. The days tech news shrunken down to 20 minutes for when you don't have 2+ hours to listen to TWIT. Also my son loves the intro music!!
Great way to end your day!
I always look forward to hearing the latest in tech at the end of my work day. I particularly like the weekend long reads and interviews. Diffidently recommend listening!
This has become a must listen!
The ride home podcast keeps me up to date on all of the top news in an efficient quick briefing. Excellent show.
The Best Way to Stay Informed
For those of us on the go or who don’t want to spend hours reading every day, the ride home is a the perfect way to stay informed on all the latest tech news.
End my day with this M-F
Witty, enjoyable, informative. One of my favorite things at the end of the day is popping on the latest episode before I head home from work!
Tight and informative. This podcast is well worth adding to the daily rotation
Excellent show, love the content and the delivery
Great show if you're looking for a quick update on the latest news in Tech. Think of it like The Daily but for Tech (and with fewer hmmmmms).
One of the most valuable sources of information
The Techmeme Ride Home is one of the most valuable sources of information I tap into everyday -- and it's one of the few I look forward to. Great daily summaries. Friday long-read recommendations are always interesting. And bonus episode interviews #thumbsup.
Great info in a shorter length podcast
Host has a good sense of humor and provides great info in a shorter length podcast.
Appreciate your work and how much fun you make it
quick and informative
I like the format, no bs filler and straight to the point. This and marketplace are my go-to for unwinding at the end of the day.
Amazing daily tech news roundup
I’ve been listening to this pod since it’s launch. It has only gotten better every day. I pay for the no ad version. Love this pod.
Nothing more than a shilling site
The Real Zen Boy
I guess this is what someone might call journalism, but it isn’t. He just shills products, most notably Amazon. When called out, he proceeds to double down and go for a second day filling the podcast with ads pretending to be news stories. I WAS on the fence about whether to delete this one, but today that question was emphatically answer: DELETED. There better out there.
Cool ride home technology podcast
I start my day with MacOSKen and end my day with this podcast. Very informative on technology everywhere.
Never miss an episode
I literally check everyday when the episode drops to listen to it.. such amazing insights and news I don’t necessarily find in other tech podcasts
Best daily tech news
Brian does a great job knowing everything thats going on and filtering the news into a fast moving and enjoyable show. Thanks Brian!
The Man Who Could Have Been Bill Gates 1 & 2
Good stuff! More peopel need to listen to his episodes to truly understand the roots of the PC industry.
Great way to end the day
I love listening to this podcast to unwind from a busy day and get a quick update on the tech world.
Gotta love it! Still need some polishing on the weekend interviews. Keep up the great work!
I always appreciate his take the tech industry. This makes my drive home from work something to look forward to.
Great way to catch up on today’s tech news
I started listening to this podcast about a month ago and it has quickly become my drive home listen. Every day I look forward to hearing Brian’s take on today’s tech news. He tends to hit all the important news along with catching the small but interesting stuff. If you like tech and have 25 minutes wasted in transit each day where all you can do is listen, this podcast is a must.
My daily tech catch up
I am not in tech but love following tech news. Brian’s podcast is my daily vice. It’s in my not-not-be-missed category and an inherent part of my otherwise dull commute. Love new addition of weekend interviews as well. Overall it’s a great combination of news, opinions/takes and occasional tech rumors.
Great tech news podcast
Continues to have the hallmarks of a great tech news podcast. It covers relevant news, is interesting and provides suitable depth on tech topics. Compared to numerous other tech podcasts, there is not too much fluff and chitchat. Also the tech research is not too shallow.
Enjoyable, Even For The Casual Listener
I am not in the industry. I just enjoy technology. This podcast keeps me up to date in an entertaining fashion. The host has a pleasant voice and just the right personality to keep it flowing fast with just the right amount of humor.
It is ad supported, but now there is a ‘pay for ad free’ option. That flexibility is great.
The only downside is that the new weekend interviews just do not keep my interest, but others may find them interesting.
Keep up the great work.
Great Podcast with a great wrap-up of the days events
Great MN Race
Great topics and excellent daily updates. Yes, this version is supports by a few ads in the middle but they are clearly called out “this podcast is brought to you by...” and skippable.
A perfect end of day wrap-up of latest tech news. Nice work @brianmcc
Techmeme ride home is the podcast you don’t want to miss!
People think I happen to be smart about technology. I just happen to listen to tech meme to keep up with tech!
And I can use the information I gather to make my own podcast “iGageit” to tell the information in a new way. If I got paid to stop listening to tech meme I would turn it down flat. End Quote.
What is an ad and what is content?
This podcast has amazing headline bait. In the headlines I see interesting things I want to know about but once I get into the podcast it gets annoying when I hear an ad basically disguised as a topic. Very very annoying. Time to unsubscribe.
Let me start with I really like this show. I like the weekday updates, but more than that I really like the weekend episodes with interviews about what’s happening in tech. They’re fascinating. Now they’re putting most of the weekend episodes behind a paywall and charging for them. I like this show, but not that much. Unsubscribe
I wish I had known about this earlier!! Such a great podcast, loaded with information, knowledge, and recapping of the days tech news. If you're not one to scoure the web for articles and want it all nicely packaged like I do; this podcast is perfect!
A Great Resource for staying up to date with tech
I started to listen to Techmeme Ride Home several months ago and it quickly became one of my not-to-be-missed podcasts. With a mix of humor, intelligence and research, Brian provides a very thorough daily update on what has been happening in the world of tech, and provides it in a very efficient and compact package. Highly recommended. Check it out, you won’t be sorry.
Here just for the news reading
The Techmeme website is a great resource for all news related to tech, not only it aggregates multiple sources at a glance but it’s also unopinionated by nature. I’ve followed this podcast in the early days thinking the exact reason.
Back then, the podcast had a hobby charm and Brian’s side remark on subjects seemed fun and doesn’t bogged down the news reading too much. Though these days the side takes are more frequent and despite quoting opinions from different angle on a particular piece, the podcast is now more about Brian’s take on these subject matter and often times it’s delivered with a condescending tone.
I would still follow and listen because I can’t find any alternatives to consume Techmeme in audio format, though I expect myself to cringe more often now.
The weekend interviews are a great idea but I do hope Brian comes up with better questions and things to talk about. (See second half of Mark Gurman’s episode)
News AND analysis
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.
Great round up eveyday!!
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
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
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!
Solid Daily Listen!
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! Subscribe! Subscribe!
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.
The breadth, tone, topics & length is perfect for me. Five thumbs up!
Love this podcast! Brian 👍👍
Rock The Shark
I look forward to my daily dose of tech
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.
Perfect way to end the day and hear about the tech industry. I look forward to this podcast every day!
