John Rrrrrrrrr. ,

First time listener

Good morning gentlemen,
first time listening to Your show and I want to say it’s now part of my rotation! Heard about you from the Jordan Harbinger show. I could not find a way to write the show from the podcast, there was no way or link or email address. Hopefully this finds you for the next episode. I’ve and having an issue with my TV, maybe not a Mac problem well it’s not, but maybe somebody has a solution since I have searched all over the place and could not find one. My wife and I have sling TV as one of our apps on a smart TV. Every time we turn on the TV it immediately goes to sling, and when we exit out of sling to try to go to a different app it always reboots sling and it’s very frustrating, any tips?

Thanks guys excited for the next episode and will be binging on your previous.

John

Entertaining and informative

Listened for at least a decade to this podcast - so that tells you something….it’s the only tech podcast I listen to and I listen for the knowledge learned and also just for John and Dave (and sometimes Pilot Pete). Of course I learn many new things (hopefully five a show) but also it’s entertaining

Love the show but now has TOO MANY ADS

I’ve listened to this podcast for many years, and it is still one of my favorites. I’ve learned a lot from it. However, it seems that in the last few months to a year, they’ve added a LOT of ads. I understand you need to make money, and I understand you can become a premium member to make it ad-free. However, if you don’t wish to do this, you will find yourself fast-forwarding several times in the show, which is annoying (especially since the advertisers are no longer “Mac centric”).
