Hey, this is Chris and he likes tech. He also likes cheese. You know who else likes cheese? Pandas. Probably. He's not a zoologist so you should wikipedia that. It all started one day when he was born not a zoologist. He continued to live in Vermont for 30 years having been a baker, a grocer, a music instrument store manager, a son, a brother, a friend, a band mate, a human but still nothing to do with zoology. And having succeeded in never doing anything in zoology that would answer our initial query he finds himself hosting a podcast for present and future tech, geek, and video games.
