Marques Brownlee, known as MKBHD, is one of the most popular tech reviewers on YouTube. With the Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast, the reviewer and commentator adds podcaster to his resume. He brings the same enthusiasm and charm from his YouTube channel to the podcast.
The company began reviewing tech products in 2008 as MKBHD. His YouTube channel also offered tutorials on how to use various types of freeware. His primary channel has almost 17 million subscribers. Former Google exec Vic Gundotra called MKBHD "The best tech reviewer on the planet right now." After listening to Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast, it becomes clear why he has become so popular. He combines a large amount of tech knowledge with a friendly demeanor. His style is both informative and easy to follow. This has contributed to his popularity. He is also one of the few Black voices in this field.
The cohosts of this podcast are Andrew Manganelli and David Imel. Both are longtime friends of Brownlee's, and the trio work well together. Their commentary on Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast is not only knowledgeable but also funny. This keeps potentially dry tech subjects interesting and engaging.
If there is a new trend in tech, this podcast will explore it further. Recent episodes have looked at the new Google Pixel line and deepfake videos. Occasionally, the team will invite a prominent tech CEO to appear on the podcast for an interview. Meta's Mark Zuckerburg and Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe are only a few of the notable people that have appeared here. Brownlee is an effective and engaging interviewer.
Episodes of the Waveform: The MKBHD Podcast average about an hour in length. New episodes of the podcast premiere on Friday of each week.
