Antkowiak is our guest on episode No. 126 of The Weekly Driver Podcast.

Co-hosts Bruce Aldrich and James Raia discuss talk with Antowiak about the couple’s history with the site and their process for testing home technology equipment.

The couple’s home technology extends to the automobile industry, and we discuss that, too. We talk about navigation systems to the future of autonomous driving.

Antkowiak and Pallone recently purchased a Hyundai Santa Fe, and they’re impressed with varied and efficient technology functions the South Korean SUV features.

Antkowiak narrates and Pallone produces a piece on the extensive features available on the Hyundai. It’s among the many videos the couple has featured on their YouTube channel.

Here’s how Antkowiak and Pallone define their business:

“Exploring technology and products available for the Smart Home, the Kitchen and Travel. We test and review products in our own home or occasionally, at our friends’ and relatives’ homes, and share our experience with stories and videos.”
