Randy’s O. ,

Electronics and Apple talk is really good, but!!!!

Leo…. Stick to Apple talk. Your show is really amazing and I really enjoy listening, until you talk politics. Start another podcast about politics. Leave this podcast strictly Apple and tech talk.

DJBokChoy ,

Love the show, but PLEASE remove politics

Great show, however there is an increase in political talk / bias, Twitter and Elon rants, and a decrease in actual Tech Talk

__Terry__ ,

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.
