    Hey Tom
    Love DTNS and all the added guests and regulars. Just wanted you to know I used to subscribe to a handful of This week in Tech shows. Including Tech News Today. I’ve unsubscribed to all of them, why? They became political, and all I want to listen to is tech, not someone’s political views. I hope DTNS doesn’t go down that road. I’ve heard you check yourself many times when you’ve thought the show was moving to politics. You don’t have advertisers to manipulate the show, much like the No Agenda Show.
    May you have great success.
    Thanks again for the great content.
