Great Podcast

Wes & William are 2 of my favorite people to listen to on podcasts. I was sad when Stephen left, but was excited when I found out they were taking over. I was afraid the show would go away entirely, which would be a shame.

I’m not sure why so many are complaining about Wes, he does a great job, he just likes to talk…. Which is the point of a podcast… Also, I would say if you don’t like him “defending” Apple so much maybe don’t listen to a podcast called “Apple” Insider… just saying. I think Wes & William have a good dynamic and if the show runs longer because of it, that’s fine with me!

Ep 517

Sour Puss Mike only thinks he can see new paradigms. Clearly just a dinosaur keyboard guy that is married to his old school habits. I was shocked that he can’t envision the new opportunities the VP platform enables. Not worth listening to.

I am done

Well…I am unfollowing. This show used to be one of my favorites. Now, it is the vehicle for Wes Hilliard to condescend his audience, his cohost, and all technophiles. I honestly can’t believe how many times we had to listen to the fact that he was writing the review for the Apple Vision Pro. If I was him, I would be proud to be selected by Apple Insider, but as a listener, I could care less…and it just came across as a not-so-humble brag…over and over. There are a lot of great Apple Podcasts, so I am moving on. Even though I am a long time listener, it is just a mess of a show, and no longer a healthy discussion on Apple products and news…it is just the Wes Hilliard show…and that leaves me no motivation to keep listening.
