Enjoyable but be aware of host bias

I’ve been listening to 9to5mac happy hour for a long time. The hosts do a great job and are fun to listen to if you like to geek out on Apple stuff. Just know going in that Zac (not Benjamin) is a super passionate Apple fanboy who has blinders on most of time.

Model podcasting

Compulsive weekly listener. Now video adds an element of fascination with faces matched to voices. Only question is duration. I feel, unless it’s an Apple keynote week or equivalent, the podcast should not last longer than an hour. Still, I’ll probably listen whatever the length. Thanks, guys.

Apple Fan boy taken to a new level

This week show starting off with a discussion of going to a theater to see “The Banker” and waiting on the credits to see if Apple is mentioned anywhere . I think Zac will be best to stick to the topics they wish to discuss as it pertains to the show and audience but there are topics as the one mentioned above that IMO the only person interested will be Zac. I think that needs to change or I will listen else where for my Apple News.
