Djboody ,

Big fan!

Really look forward to the show every week. Andy, Rene, Alex and Leo make it fun to be a geek, thanks for the witty banter and informative talk about Apple.

MontonGuy ,

Covid

Deleting this podcast subscription. When you get rid of Andy and his ramblings about Covid and politics let me know.

El Hombre 45 ,

Gone steadily down..

Long time listener but am slowly tiring of Andy’s babbling and Leo trying to finish everyone’s thoughts. Rene is pretty much the only reason to keep coming back.
