Technology radio has finally come of age! There is so much variety in programs and online technology radio these days that you can find a program you love. Take a moment to look at their popular programs and guests to determine if they are your perfect fit.
These days you can listen to tech radio anywhere in the world, and by that token many people consider themselves perfect hosts so choose carefully to avoid a big waste of time. First, ask yourself what you are looking for when you listen to technology radio. Are you a fan of new consumer technologies and games or are you more interested in the business aspect? Uncovering some of your main preferences in topics can help you along the way. Technology radio is a giant bucket and can include elements of hardware, home theater, internet, phones, business and other topics. Do you already follow tech blogs? Use that as a starting point to find the best technology radio program for your individual interests.
Just like any form of talk radio, you will discover some personalities that are not a good fit for you. Do not be afraid to try a whole handful of programs when you look for someone that does not grate on you like particular politicos might. On a side note, I have found that the days when big stories come out and everyone is covering the same news event you can essentially grade them against each other. Looking at the next launch of a popular tool or device for an example of this point.
Look for conflict in technology radio just like in other forms of media and broadcasting. For every product, brand and topic you will find opposing views. Use that chatter to your advantage to find a compatible host for your technology radio listening. Remember with the advent of easy internet radio, just having a show does not mean that it will be the technology radio show for you.
