Grumpy Old Geeks

Reviews For Grumpy Old Geeks

Grumpy or not, very entertaining show. Stay grumpy my friends.
I am nether old nor a geek but I am grumpy. An excellent show to listen to if you want to keep up with the tech and media news. Makes for a great listen during my walk to school or when I’m smoking my pipe to relax. I’ll hop on the Patreon when I get a real job. Thank you Jason and Brian for quality content in a sea of trash
These guys deliver. Phenomenal show.
More like very blunt middle age men.
OK now stop asking.
Thanks for all you guys love your Humor in all great news you bring to the show thanks
If you've ever felt grumpy, outraged, or overwhelmed by today's technology, you will see a lot of yourself in this podcast. The hosts go over the tech news of the day, calling out ridiculous trends like the proliferation of electric scooters, and making predictions about the future of technology that often prove true! (Protip: nobody ever went wrong predicting the worse possible outcome for any technology.)
I like this podcast. I listen to it on my daily commute. Its funny, informative, geeky, and for sure grumpy. I usually forget to go back and check show note afterwards, I hope there is a newsletter with the notes sent to my email directly. Thanks a lot guys and stay grumpy.
Decent conversation and synergy between the hosts. Jason keeps the show going though. Brian is too arrogant for his own good. Very off-putting personality.
This podcast is probably the only one I listen to regularly. I hate when they get political, but they seem to realize that we all don't agree with each other and avoid the topic as often as possible. This is the most professionally sounding podcast out there, and they are funny / interesting / snarky.
It starts with a curious press of a button. Before you know it, you’ve grabbed the tail of the dragon. Shout out to Morgan for dealing me my first episode. A witty, informative, snarky, sobering look at the world of tech and what went wrong. I picked up a few episodes back in March. As a glutton for punishment, I went back to episode numero uno and began to binge the whole thing. My commute allows me to polish off an episode or two a day. I cheered at episode 100, was jubilant at episode 200 and can’t wait to reach episode 300. From babies born (congrats) to watching Bam Bam (Brian, drink!) on Jason’s Chinese web cams; I’m hooked. Currently up to December of 2017... miles to go before I sleep.
I am neither old nor grumpy. In fact, I am young and rather optimistic. However, this podcast provides an informative and realistic take on the goings on in the tech world. (At least as far as I can tell. I am by no means what you would call a tech expert). Although Jason and Brian love to make fun of my generation, I apprecaite their insights and humor as I learn more about this world that baffles me.
These whippersnappers moan & graon like they're the ones who typed out Fortran programs on punch cards (after walking to school barefoot in the snow uphill). Serously, this is a great cast about things internet. And for anyone who might object to some left of center opion - sit down & shut up. I disagree sometimes too, but hearing someone out is the right thing to do.
you can't stop listening to these guys. arguably the best dynamic between Jason and Brian out of all the podcast's I listen to. Been listening to them since the beginning and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. For newcomers, check out the early shows...it'll make you appreciate the current, uh..quality of the podcast that much more!
Does tech interest you? Do you like other stuff too? Then check out these grumps!
They are not old or very geeky. They are grumpy and enjoyable.
In my world I started to cheer up about the future then my wife told me about these guys. I find myself listening to them more than anything other podcasts I subscribe to because they are me. I’m back to my gloom and doom self wishing for one hellacious EMP to thin the herd (Sucky Zucky is a good start) Stay grumpy. I need some kind of hopelessness to look forward to.
Great show . Funny
As far as cooking shows go, I'd give them a D-, but I guess if you listen to the underlying messages there's some A+ tech content in there. I've heard some great tips about password managers, suggestions for protecting credit cards, and otherwise great tech, gadget, and media discussion, but I still don't know how to make an amuse-bouche. Seriously though, I've been listening for however long it's taken Jason to move from LA to Chicago and back to LA again, and have always enjoyed the content, the banter between Jason and Brian, and the format of the show. The racoon king is also a great addition to the security segment. Keep on grumpin.
The only thing better then grumpy old geeks is the squeal coming in 2020 Grumpier old geeks. Don’t miss this original podcast
Not that grumpy and not funny. Really tried to force myself to listen and enjoy but had to unsubscribe. Good tech info, just didn’t connect with the guys
The grumpiest grumps and I love it!! Been listening to these guys for about a year and a half and just now signed up for a Patreon donation. From the ever changing landscape of tech and accompanying moralism (or lack thereof), the erosion of our ethics, privacy and such, these guys touch a lot of bases to keep you up to date with our Orwelian world. News, music, books, security, tech toys...all is here. A joy to my short podcast subscription list. From a fellow grump myself, stay grumpy!! Oh yeah....Deliverooooooooooo!!!!
Hey dudes! At the end of episode 339 I heard some reminiscing about getting the airline wings and how they don’t do that anymore. On Alaska Airlines, this very February, I asked for and received a pair of wings and got to pop my head in the cockpit and say hi to the flight crew. Anyways, love the show, been binging since I discovered y’all back in November. Enjoy the 5 star, you earned it.
Love your stuff, you keep me chuckling every episode. As a "Furry" webcaster, I know it is hard to put together a tight, clean, well leveled and edited production, and you guys do a good job of it. Send a furry YAP over to your furry buddy Bitner for me :) --Yappy Fox, a grumpy "gray muzzle" geek.
Only tech show I've listened to for the past five years. A technology show about actual technology...as opposed to other tech shows that only talk about the new phones and tablets. Mix of of current events with tech, books, security, random ramblings...all good stuff.
Guess what... You can hate them too! I highly recommend listening to their bi-weekly podcast every errrr... week so you can fully grasp how much I truly loathe them. It may take a few years of listening but it's worth it. They're loathsomely loathsome. In the end you may end up like me and hate-sponsor them with a few dollars just so that you can keep the hatred alive. Stay grumpy!™
Great podcast. From one grump to another.
On long drives I love listening. I save a number of episodes and then the drive just flies by. They never seem out of date, always provide useful information (and some that is just funny - which is also useful on long drives!!). I have been part of "this world" since I bought my first Compaq Computer (before Compaq even had hard drives!!!). So I guess I also qualify as an "Old Geek." Keep up the Geeking.
These guys are frustrated about the weak links in the chain - the people! Sad that they never learn but I know I learn from them every time they post a new episode. The 2 times a week is great as I need my "fix" and more is better. Thank you for the insight and experience and educated recommendations! I'm posting on here but listen on Overcast and don't have enough stars in enough podcasting apps to support you more. Thank you, Jason And for kicks for JPD - Deliverooooo!
These are the guys you used to stalk in the coffee room at work just to listen to them complain and get up to date on the news. It's technical, it's a barrel full of laughs and it's grumpy. You'll learn and be well entertained by them in the process. This is not your momma's podcast. GRUMP ON! And I want to hear Jason say, "Deliveroo"
An enjoyable listen.
I've been listening to Jason and Brian weekly for over a year and by now they are the only tech podcast I listen to and practically the only podcast I have time for these days. These guys have a finger on the pulse of today's digital zeitgeist. I really enjoy the bi-weekly format because the news and updates are always fresh. I get my cybersecurity fix on Mondays with guest Dave Bittner, and then my latest update on Media on Thursdays. I'm roughly the same age as Jason and Brian and a very similar life story, having started building websites in the mid 90s. I'd like to think I'm not as grumpy, but I find myself agreeing with almost everything they say and catch myself laughing out loud during my morning commute. Stay grumpy!
GOG is the only podcast I subscribe to and listen to regularly. I’m older than them, grumpier than them but not as geeky. They resonate with me. I trust them. I grump with them. I’m cursing mad at the same things they are.

Love listening to you guys while at work. I think you have a lot of knowledge to pass down to the younger geeks like me(30/m). I hope your show keeps growing. I also hope those who make important changes to tech will be listening! Also wondering if either of you listened to the Rogen podcast with Jack Dorsey of Twitter on banning/censorship. I could understand if Rogen isn’t your cup of tea but would love to hear your thoughts. Stay grumpy!
I like this show, it’s unique. Quite a few things up my alley. :)
I love these two. They find all the interesting tech stories and discuss them with the wisdom of been-there, seen-that tech veterans. This is great for me as I can't be arsed to do the reading, but appreciate keeping up to date. They also have good taste (well, aligned with mine) in music, TV and books. Being a similarly aged, vintage geek, I get all their jokes and it's a bit like hanging out with the smart and cynical coders from my old jobs. They have a genuine rapport, and chuckle at each other with glee. Of the two, Jason's always a bit more of a wildcard, but that's fun too when he gets on his soapbox and rants. Thanks Jason and Brian! You guys do a great job. Oh, and production values are super too.
I’m an old tech guy myself, and remember the boom and bust of the 90’s. Love to hear other “learned” voices commenting on the way things are going (Badly!). Keep it up!
You guys are awesome! I work at pretty simple job making lasers that I know will be taken by AI within the next 10 years. But I doubt AI will listen to Podcasts while working?! So you guys make my job that much easier 😀. Keep up the great work! -jimmy
This is a really good podcasts. These guys say what everyone else is thinking, they do it will humor. Love to laugh with/at these guys. Also, full of good information. Recommend everyone check it out
Would have rated the show at six stars, less one star as I had to leave a snarky remark/comment--consider a 5 of 6 (Next Gen) and a MeatSpace score of 4.755. Guess I wil just have to go to the website, what is the address again? Knowing you're both Sci-Fi buffs/fanboys I guess I am older than both of you as I predate your cultural linkage by way of Lost in Space, Ginger was hot. Sorry I couldn't feed the collective kitty or Jason's dogs, as I am snowed in this year and NASA won't fly me out.
It’s refreshing to catch up with you guys twice a week on the absurd events that unfold. There is never a short of stupidness in our society today! Highly recommended show!
You guys are the best. I usually get a good laugh from Brian and Jason. You are the best tech podcast since the old Maximum PC No BS podcasts from back in 2007-2008. You really open my eyes about security and the whole Facebook fiasco and have even inspired me to do my very own podcast, albeit on a completely different subject - cars! Thanks guys, keep it up.
I've been listening for years now and figured I'd leave a review. I guess I like the show. They help me catch up with the news and give me a chuckles. Keep up the good work!
Between cheering them on for being brilliant and screaming that they’re idiots, I certainly get a workout each week. But through it all they never fail to make me think. So thank you. Now GET OFF MY LAWN!!! Just stay grumpy while you do!
Great podcast that gives the listener a dose of sweet creamer in the coffee cup of life!
I listen to the show because it is at least better than what is on the FM radio.
These guys are the bomb diggity! Highly irritable, well informed and amazingly informative and entertaining. Makes my commute and work route exceedingly enjoyable. ***Sorry not feeling too snarky, atm. ***
