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.

Desperately needs a reboot

Leo is a terrific host, and a smart enough broadcaster to know that this show is broken. But he makes no changes, either out of friendship or inertia. Alex's POV is pretty niche, and Andy's rambling is unlistenable. Jason should be the centerpiece of the reboot, with two new hosts....and Leo. Until then, there are many better Apple shows to choose from. (Including another podcast with Jason, "Upgrade.")
