Upgrade looks at how technology shapes our lives, from the devices in our hands and pockets to the streaming services that keep us entertained. Hosted by Myke Hurley and Jason Snell.
Tina, If You're Tuna…
The avalanche of 2021 Apple product rumors has arrived, the Mac App Store turns 10, tech platforms show some of their users the door, and Jason provides Intel Mac buying advice to a friend, or is it a fish?
New Year, Same Old Prediction
2021 has arrived, so it's time for Jason to predict what he thinks Apple will do this year. But it's also time for Myke to look back on his 2020 predictions and judge how well those came out.
The 2020 Upgradies
It's the 7th annual Upgradies! Myke and Jason discuss their favorites of 2020 across many categories.
Mandatory Turkey Holiday
It's the Upgrade Holiday Special! Myke reviews the AirPods Pro Max and Jason reviews Apple Fitness+. Then we get into the spirit of the season with a holiday-themed #askupgrade, and Myke watches "A Charlie Brown Christmas" for the very first time!
People Aren't Always Logical
Warner Media blowback, Apple's Gawker show gets cancelled, Disney fires off its Death Star, and Apple announced a $550 pair of headphones.
The Stale Hot Dog Industry
Warner Media moves its 2021 films onto HBO Max--what's the future of the movie industry? And a new Mark Gurman report gives some shape to the future of Apple's M-series processors--it turns out the M stands for "more cores."

Usually interesting conversations.
Fun and informative
Jason Snell is a journalist with decades of experience covering PCs in general and Apple products in particular. Make Hurley is a younger nerd with limitless capacity to nerd out on the details of modern technology. They constantly amaze and entertain me with their ability to go into detail on the design aspects of new products. Even I don’t share their tastes in modern culture (strange how so many Apple nerds are also Star Wars and Star Trek fans), I enjoy listening to them talk about it. Very entertaining podcast.
A nice upgrade to my list
I started listening to Upgrade pre-streaming wars and got really into the Upstream segment. It’s really refreshing to have hosts that try to put a positive attitude to the things they cover. It’s easy to complain about lots of things in the tech industry but I feel like Jason and Myke try to approach things with a positive and excited outlook which is more fun to listen to.
