S2E5: Geeks In Love #CouplesAndTechnology

Donna and Roy

In this Episode:

This is a very special episode that features my lovely wife, Donna. This is her first time on the program. We celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary May 31st. Both of us work in Information Technology so we share a passion for gadgets and technology and it is very much embedded into our lives and that of our kids. We talk about what it takes to keep things going with technology in a marriage or other coupling.

Also we talk about when we were featured in Computer World Valentines article about Geeks In Love. Donna and I along with other couples were featured about how we deal with technology issues.  You should read the whole article which was written by Tracy Mayor but here we are on page 3 of the article.

I hope you enjoy the show. #podcast
