Thoroughly Enjoyable and Highly Informative

I have been listening for many years and I still enjoy these podcasts. Great tech info. Enjoyable format. Just don’t try so hard to set up each other’s responses to the listeners’ questions. Update: It's now almost 5 years later and I'm still enjoying the show and trying to learn and remember 5 new things each episode . Yet another update: Dave and John are still keeping it upbeat, interestin, and relevant during this time of sheltering-in-place and the gradual move towards normalicy.

Best Apple Podcast ... Period!

Light on monotonous Apple corporate news and heavy on real, employable tips, Mac Geek Gab is easily my all time favorite tech podcast! I’ve been listening since 2008 and have never missed an episode. When they say the goal is to learn five new things each week, they mean it. I’ve learned more real-world tips and tricks from listening to John and Dave than I ever could have from reading blogs, books and magazine articles. If you’re longing to get more out of your Mac, iPad and/or iPhone, this is the podcast for you!

Now, if I could only find a way of obtaining one of those super-cool MGG coffee mugs I’ve seen photos of... 🤔☕️
