Something to aspire to

David Sparks and Rosemary Orchard talk the talk and walk the walk. Both are true experts who actually enjoy educating the audience with the potential of automation in the Apple ecosphere. I learn something useful every episode and frankly, I just enjoy their company. Highly recommended if you have any interest in reducing your keystrokes and other forms of drudgery on Apple devices.

-helps me to do more than I thought possible-

Rosemary Orchard and David Sparks have an easy style but give so much useful info I literally can't get everything out of all the sharing they do with just one listen - this may be the most useful podcast I've found!

Superb content mixed with average performance

I have been a big fan of David Sparks for so many years. This podcast has an amazing content. But I like solid performance and speech and dislike stammering. My only advice is to significantly reduce the number of “you knows” that both say, in particular Rosemary. She has 900+ shortcuts. I think the number of “you knows” per podcast are very close.
