Some radio stations across the country receive special feeds with only a portion of the full broadcast. The podcast contains all 80 minutes of content each week, and it's a fresh broadcast every week since we started, with no "best-of" programs, or even a week off. Benjamin believes that your computer doesn't rest, so neither should the Computer Talk Radio team!
