Drill Bits 200 – More with Reg and Lidija

Welcome to Drill Bits, the podcast where we rescue the stuff that fell on the editing room floor of The Drill Down, material that was either too long or off-topic, yet still interesting.

This week on The Drill Down episode 200,  we spoke with some of The Drill Down’s former co-hosts about their reminiscences of the past 200 episodes. We recorded a lot more than what we aired however, and had to cut some fascinating discussion to keep the show at a reasonable length.

First we continue our conversation with Reg Saddler, one of the founding members of The Drill Down, from its inception back in July 2007. Here he discusses his secrets to improving Klout scores, Google conspiracy theories, Apple’s success strategy, and his brush with Steve Jobs.

Then we finish our discussion with Lidija Davis, who joined the show in September 2008 as our first full-time female panelist. We discuss her thoughts on Steve Jobs’ departure from Apple, Michael Arrington’s ouster from TechCrunch, and her mixed feelings on Google.

Drill Bits 127 – Saydrah and the ‘Ghost Ban’

This week on The Drill Down we had a little extra discussion lying around, so as we usually do in cases like this, we broke it off into its own mini-podcast, which we like to call ‘Drill Bits‘.


JD Rucker, Tom Cheredar, Andrew Sorcini and Digg ‘power user’ LtGenPanda discuss the recent user uprising  against Reddit user Saydrah, and exactly what happens when you get ‘ghost banned’ on that site.
