Great

Great weekly podcast to listen to. My second favorite next to apple keynotes.

A Solid Show

A wealth of information on all things Mac. The only reason I don't rate it higher is that I feel Mike could do a better job interacting with his guests. He has a tendency to drone on and in several shows its been as long as 15 minutes before you heard his guests say much more than "hi".

Karres ,

The finest Macintosh podcast in iTunes.

Fantastic! This podcast has everything: Mac news, commentary, technical help, and how-tos. Any time Apple makes changes in the OS, Mike is right there to explain how to upgrade and accommodate the changes.
Best of all, along with the expertise, he has a pleasant and relaxing voice to listen to.
