Are you guys looking for something different in the tech podcast medium? Well look no further, The 404 on CNET is a podcast that takes a significantly different take of the events in the tech world. Hosted by Wilson Tang, Justin Yu and Jeff Bakalar, this podcast is not your typical everyday technology podcast. But be warned, this podcast is not for the faint hearted or the easily offended!
What first strikes me about this podcast is the chemistry between the hosts. Wilson, Justin and Jeff just have this chemistry that in my opinion is unmatched. There is no episode of The 404 where it felt awkward, boring or empty. The conversations between the hosts is what keeps this podcast interesting.
Second is the content of the show. As I said, this show doesn’t just talk about the tech news of the day. They discuss them in-depth, but not in some kind of professional analysis. Just in straight talk in everyday conversation that you have with your mates if you were talking to them about technology. In addition, they discuss non-tech topics which in my opinion gives a great contrast of topics, and thus appeals to a broader audience than the typical technology podcast.
So if you dare to listen to it (put up with Justin Yu’s numerous adult-themed jokes), head on over to http://the404.cnet.com and listen to their latest episode. Or even better, suscribe to them on iTunes. You won’t regret it. You could listen live to the show at 11am EST on http://www.watchbol.com and join in to the live chat that comes with it. I’ll be in the room as your helpful chatroom op, you just have to guess which one is me!
