What is Full Frontal Nerdity (FFN)?
Although they may have only a few podcast episodes under their pocket protectors, these IT Pros are dishing out a strong weekly tech- news focused podcast. If listening to tech news sounds a bit boring, you can bet your new Apple Watch that this podcast is anything but dull.
From wearable tech to the latest security breach, these guys break down tech news from all points of view and avenues. Offering how-tos and experience-based tips, they report the news, but also share real insights that you can only get from professionals who live and work with technology every single day.
This podcast has become one of my very favorites.
Now, let's dive into the sneak peek info you've been waiting to read.
Who is FFN?
The podcast crew consists of some of our favorite IT Pros, of course, they happen to be employees here at Bit-Wizards, so we may be a bit biased on that point.
Moderator and creator of this beloved podcast, Sam Blowes, is a SharePoint Developer here at Bit-Wizards. The idea for this weekly tech podcast came to him while enjoying the constant banter that fills the shared office space of his fellow IT co-workers, Jeff Mitchell, Randy Schumann, and Joaquin Broadus. Sam decided that this seemingly normal office banter included quite a bit of valuable information and, thus, he dragged his co-workers into this new endeavor that they have come to enjoy on a weekly basis.

When Can You Listen to FFN?
Every week on Tuesday afternoon, the crew gathers in their conference room and prepares to record.
They share a potluck lunch and dive into their topics filled with light-hearted banter and peppered with geek jokes and lots of value for IT Pros and anyone interested in keeping up with tech news from around the world.
The show is usually live and ready for your yearning ears by the mid-afternoon on Tuesdays. Personally, I like to save the show for my Wednesday morning dreamill run... geek talk makes me run further ;)
