Tech 107 The only technology podcast you will ever need!


Easter break

Apologies for the lack of a show again this week, once again Seb and I have been snowed under in work!

As some of you may know, our term has now officially finished, so that means no more live streaming as the Purple Radio studio is all locked up for Easter :-( However - we're hoping to do a couple of podcasts over the break to keep the technology banter rolling! We've got some exciting guests in line for next term, so watch this space for our new slot time from the end of April onwards, and keep an eye out over the next few weeks for the odd podcast.
