Our Podcast Show Ep.25 – Best of 2022 Computer Hardware

We’ve just posted our latest podcast. Episode 25 – Best PC Hardware of 2022 (On Worst Podcast Platform)! Go check out the podcast and remember to subscribe: https://bit.ly/3NFvWq8 👈

On Our Podcast Show for the second time this week, we are making it up to you, our viewers, for our failure to give you a show last week brought to you by Riverside.FM. We kick off our BEST OF 2022 series in this show, starting with the best PC hardware this year. From the best graphics card, the best CPU, plus the best motherboard to the best ram, the best cooling, the best SSD and more.

It’s a geeky episode, we both agree, but they are all things you’ll find INSIDE your desktop computer. We’ll try to break it down so it’s easier to follow. Please ask questions in the comments!

And, to prove we’re not a couple of Space Karens complaining to the manager of Riverside.FM, we’re capturing all of the platform’s failures in real-time. Don’t adjust your browser.
