OldSchoolNerd70 ,

Mostly good listen except for Andy

Jason and Alex bring a lot of expertise to the conversation. Leo is a great host. However, Andy’s rambling nonsense is getting really hard to tolerate.

DemandJustice ,

The Standard Bearer

Macbreak Weekly is the longest running and best Apple oriented podcasts out there. Jason Snell is a great addition to the show. I like the fact that they aren’t just Apple cheerleaders - they push Apple when they do things that they disagree with.

This is the Apple podcast to listen to.

MacMcAndrew ,

What do you expect from a company named TWITT!

Jason & Alex there are two seats left on this sinking ships lifeboat…..Get off this wreck and leave it to the TWITT’s
