Fantastic Show

One of the highlights of my week is listening to the Mac Geek Gab - John and Dave (and sometimes Pilot Pete) answer all your questions related to Apple products and services. They also show you cool stuff found, and tips and tricks. This is the first podcast I ever downloaded (way back in 2006), and haven’t missed an episode! I strongly encourage you to check them out - they are the best!

So Helpful and Fun

Not only do Dave and John know their stuff, they present it in a format that makes it fun and informative without being a tech fest. No droning on with inside terminology that only a nerd would understand makes this a good listen without being a boring basic information podcast. They have helped me in many ways.
