Jim, you’re tired of running this show. Every next show is worse then previous. Take a break, find more materials and come back. If this show continues like that - I will unsubscribe. Possibly, this is due to fact that Dan no longer a co-host. There is another weird guy who is also bored during the show and can’t find a way to make it shorter. I used to wait for each episode, each episode was fun-filled with interesting conversation. It is no longer the case.
Please note, that despite I left you five stars - they are for past shows, this is ONE STAR REVIEW!
The show tanked. It all but ended in 2015, but they revived it for two shows around WWDC - nothing since. Instead of announcing its end, they show zero respect to listeners. Jim stopped caring a long time ago. The show is awful.
Halfway there. Get rid of the other guy
What's up with the other speaker in episode 153? The host practically has to fill in a lot of conspicuous, awkward silences solo. He asks what color his iPad is, and gets an "I don't know" as a response. Really?
And then the host says "well you have have all the accessories too!" And is met with... Nothing. Dead silence. Like, dude, why bother being on a podcast if you aren't going to be sociable or even remotely likable? Jesus.
