TalkCentral: Episode 2

Episode 2 of TechCentral’s TalkCentral podcast is live. SA’s first business technology podcast is hosted by TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod and deputy editor Candice Jones and is a weekly wrap-up of the big technology stories we’ve covered over the past week.

In our second episode — the show now has its own jingle — we talk about what was arguably the busiest news week on the tech front this year. We give our views on:

  • The acquisition by Japan’s Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp of Dimension Data
  • MTN’s mega empowerment deal
  • Communications minister Siphiwe Nyanda vs his director-general, Mamodupi Mohlala
  • Telkom’s settlement of its dispute with Telcordia
  • Cell C selling Virgin Mobile
  • Leo Baxter selling his entire stake in IT distribution giant MB Technologies

  1. Hey Guys

    Great to hear you guys Podcasting welcome to the Podesphere!

  2. Excellent, even with the dodgy sound. In this day and age you shouldn’t need to resort to something as primitive as reading to keep up with the news!

  3. Really enjoying this, and the audio really isn’t bad at all. Maybe I am just untrained but it sounds as good as any other professional podcast.

    The music at the start though is just horrid, I liked how episode one started – straight in to the info no mucking about.

  4. There’s nothing wrong with the clarity of the sound, it’s just tinny. We can’t appreciate the full extent of the manliness in Duncan’s voice.

  5. Hi Duncan and Candice

    I enjoy your discussion. You seem to have teething problems, namely, that the second podcast broadcast was not audible throughout the recording. Fix it and continue your podcast broadcasts because it keeps us informed.

  6. @Fuad: Thanks for the feedback, but you’re the only one who has complained about not being able to hear the podcast. If you’re having issues with the volume of the Web stream, you may have better luck downloading the MP3 file.
