Good show but…

Mr Snell should host this show every week. Andy needs to leave because he gets too political and doesn’t even seem to like Apple. Leo talks over everyone too often. Alex just comes off as a rich guy who has everything. There’s a base for a good show here but certain people need to be cut. Clean house and bring in people who are passionate but aren’t jerks about it.

Hans Zooman ,

A great panel to cover Apple news

Andy, Leo, Jason and Alex bring a refreshingly balanced panel of seasoned experts with different backgrounds. Each one of them has a different perspective and I sincerely enjoy it.

The best Mac podcast!

I'm proud to be a Club Twit member now.
I have been a fan of Leo, Laporte, and friends for over a decade. They are the go to People for Tek news in all operating systems. I am a Apple Mac, and iOS person.
I love the app pics on MacBreak Weekly Every week and they always spread knowledge of great apps that you would not hear about anywhere else.
It is nice to be around a bunch of intelligent people, and I feel like I am sitting in the room with them gaining technology knowledge that they spread on Twit.
Keep up the great work guys and gals!
