History of Tech tAUk
Tech tAUk began in November 2009 as a television show at ATV, the student-run television station at American University in Washington, DC. (Note the AU reference in “tAUk.”) 35 episodes of Tech tAUk were produced over 4 seasons. Tech tAUk was recognized for “pushing the envelope” of production at ATV; the show both educated and entertained with an irreverent sense of humor. In its first season in 2009-10, Tech tAUk was awarded by ATV as the Best New Show.

Douglas and Josh both graduated from AU (and thus, from ATV) in May 2013. A few months later, they decided to resurrect Tech tAUk in a new format: a weekly audio podcast. Thus, Tech tAUk Reloaded launched with its first pilot episode in August 2013.
