Simply perfect

I discovered this podcast through an Overcast recommendation, I love the Irish accent and these guys know what they are talking about. If you like Tech you will love this podcast.

An excellent overview of the month

Bart describes this as a 30,000ft overview of the month in Apple and a perfect counterpoint to the daily news shows. I agree. Bart assembles a panel of guests to mull over the past month - something that results in a show that is less affected by the "hysteria" that can sometimes overtake announcements "on the day" as it were. A calm and probably as objective as you are going to find assesment of what Apple has been up to and what it might mean as you will likely find anywhere. Excellent listen

Super podcast!

Bart and guests are very knowledgable and entertaining. The discussions are concise and yet in enough depth to provide a good understanding of current apple affairs. I strongly recommend it!
