LB_007 ,

Love this show! But...

Andy needs to go. His constant bumbling and consistent inability to get his thoughts and words out make for an infuriating listen.
How is the guy in radio?!?!

ThatMainframeDude ,

Is this really about Macs?

I recently purchased my first Mac, then started listening to this podcast to learn more about Macs. Really, they don’t discuss how to use or become familiar with the MacOS ecosystem. No such luck.

Steve Tsuida ,

Every time I try to come back, they remind me why I left.

It’s an hour of four or five people interrupting each other and then drifting off topic once they do. Everything they discuss comes from already-published news that I can scan in Apple News in a matter of minutes, without having two or three people lose focus and Troy to jam a Simpsons reference, a GenCon reference, an “I remember back in 1997…” anecdote, and then a self-aware joke about how off topic they’ve drifted. Once I finish typing this I’m going to look at the show’s RSS feed itself, then go into my Eero settings and block the domain so I can’t make the mistake of giving it one more try, again.
