Friendly and very knowledgeable hosts!

I’ve been listening for years. This is a great podcasts if you’re into Apple products more than your average consumer grade.

Doctor Mac ,

Still my favorite Apple-geek podcast... and the only podcast I never, ever miss.

If you use Apple gear and you're a geek... this is the podcast you want to listen to religiously. They say you'll learn four (or five) new things each episode, but they're being modest... you'll learn more than that (and often a lot more).

I've gotta say, Mac Geek Gab is my favorite tech podcast. And, it's the only podcast I listen to every week regardless of how busy I might be. . .

Trust me: MGG rocks if you're an Apple user.

September 4, 2019 Update:

MGG still rocks and is still the only podcast I listen to every single week no matter how busy I might be. . .

If you use Apple products, I guarantee you’ll learn at least five new things in each episode. It’s what the hosts promise, and it’s what Mac Geek Gab delivers in every episode.

Just listen... and you'll be hooked.
