Just ehh

They discuss lots of good Apple topics, but they side train too much. Leo and Andy are very left leaning bias, and it shows. Andy also always rambles without really saying anything. I’ve been listening for a while, but it’s definitely not very good anymore.

Been Listening for Years

I’ve been listening for many years and I still consistently enjoy the show and the banter between the host. I miss Rene Ritchie but Jason Snell has been a very worthy addition in his place. Really look forward to Alex’s picks and information as it’s always technical and informative. They usually have great guests on the show including some previous host like Rene. This podcast has become part of my life. The weeks that they take their well deserved break always makes my commute pretty dull. I hope the show continues on for many years.

Can’t leave out politics

Tried to listen to Tuesday’s episode for an escape from politics and learn about tech. I used to listen for an escape from everything else. But that’s impossible.
Tried to fake an Apple nexus to slam Elon Musk. If I wanted a bunch of liberal dorks to to talk about politics, I could listen to others.
