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".
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.
