Incredible!

This has always been an incredible podcast but the “Who killed the butterfly keyboard” episode was an award winner. Incredible job!

ぶぶpostman ,

mostly pretty good but

i hated the “who killed the butterfly keyboard” thing. i get they were trying to ape some popular crime podcast or something, but it was just annoying.

Killer show!

I just listened to the episode, "Who Killed the Butterfly Keyboard," and it was amazing. Such a great piece of entertainment, and it discusses the history of Apple's butterfly keyboard in the process. Well done, Jason, Myke, et al.
