Show Notes

In this episode, I’m really pleased to introduce Jack to you all. We met through the RMCRetro Discord server and after realising we shared a lot in common I invited Jack to come and join me for a discussion around some of our biggest frustrations around the complexities of tech.

We chat about the joys of keeping devices updated, the ups and downs of smart home tech, and everyone’s least favourite part of tech, passwords!

This is a bit more of a discussion episode, but I hope you enjoy it and as I mention in the show please do use the comments section to leave us your thoughts and share some of your own tech frustrations.
