Love the show

Love the show but as others have mentioned sometimes the hosts can go on way to long to make a point. I think Andy’s argument is always that the price is to high for whatever the product is... Also I wonder if Renee can hear or is he just that insensitive that he starts talking right in the middle of someone else’s point. Many times right in the “middle” of someone’s sentence he will just start talking. Anyway I can put up with the clumsy conversations for now because I love the subject and mostly like the hosts.

Ignore the right wing wacko reviews

Yea, I get it. Half (35%?) of this country are non-democratic fascist supporting crazy people and you all get to have your freedom of speech as well.

But, for the rest of us rational thinking Apple enthusiasts - the show is fun and informative. Leo is good people and not the hater that the *ahem* haters reviewing down below say he is. Ignore those clearly overly loud bits of right wing opinion.

Just note from where these voices are speaking, and listen to the podcast a few weeks. Then make up your own mind.

Cheers!

Terrible production

Love the AirPods Max, stop complaining that y’all aren’t the target audience

Hate the show, unfollowed

Host needs to shut it and let Rene and others speak, Rene actually knows what he’s talking about, he’s the only respectable one talking…
