Format[edit | edit source]
After the show's theme, Josh Jones begins with an introduction of the show and the hosts. The first few minutes are usually consumed with light banter between the hosts about goings on from the last week. This is followed by IT News, in which the hosts typically discuss and comment on four or five stories. Dana Warren introduces the stories and then all three hosts offer their opinions on each. After news, the show turns to a 12-15 minute interview of an author or other prominent member of the IT Community. The final 10 minutes of the show is filled with segments. Most shows have a "Weekly Tech Tip" from Josh Jones and the "Worst Tech Move of the Week" in which Eric Beehler discusses notably bad technology or business news. There is also a rotating segment each week led by Eric Johnson. Topics have included closer looks at technology, rants about IT Pet Pevees, and tech book reviews.
