Amazing!

As an Apple fan, I love this! It’s not clickbait, cause the titles are an overview of the podcast. Some other podcasts are short, and take a long time to get to the point. Not this one! Nice and long, but also you explain it a bit so it’s not just q/a basically.
This is great! I absolutely love it! It’s funny too! What I really like is that yes, it’s only very slightly Apple biased. You just talk a bout Apple. It’s like you like apple 51% and Windows 50%. (Okay, maybe a little less windows) also how can I comment on a specific episode? I really want to be able to.

Bart Busschots is the gem here.

I listen to this podcast for one reason only...the bi-weekly “Security Bits” segment with Bart Busschots. If Bart were to go elsewhere I’d quickly follow and leave this podcast in the dust.

The host is often very abrasive toward Bart when his political or personal security agenda differs from hers.

She has friends in the Android podcast community with whom she cross-promotes and thus is always trying to downplay security differences between Apple and Android trying to play both sides of the fence apparently to keep audience numbers up.

The host also appears to me to be a man-hater. She goes out of her way interrupting Bart when he uses the pronoun “he” by interjecting “or She!” She goes over the top adding “girl” to any term she can: “girl-power”, “girl-skills”, “my go-to girl”, etc.

When she has a negative experience with someone (salesperson, tech. support, etc.) she is WAY more likely to refer to them as “my little friend” (emphasis on little) if the person she dealt with was male.

On a recent episode her guest Bart tried to educate her on the etymology of the words “man”, “woman”, “mankind”, “manual” and the like. She immediately shut him down saying “I’m not going to discuss this with you!” Like a true Californian, if the facts don’t match up to your agenda or if someone has a different view than you, attack.

Bart has really good information to share. He has a healthy amount of digital paranoia and an eye toward preserving ALL of our privacy online. I just wish he’d go off on his own or find a better host. It’s a shame that so much good information and help has to be overshadowed by a host with a personal agenda who is abrasive and appears to be quite bitter at times.

Informative and entertaining

While the show has an “ever so slight” Macintosh bias, it really is more about tech and the fun of being a geek. Allison and guests share their insight on Apple products and tech in general in a way that is informative and entertaining. Allison has built a strong an loyal following that participates in a chat room while she records the program weekly. Her connection with her audience and that community makes the show special in a field of tech and Apple related podcasts.

2019: Four years later and the podcast is better than ever. I'm still a faithful listener. The host has expended and developed the content into useful segments and different show streams if some parts interest you more than others. She has also added chapter markers making it very easy to move from subject to subject.
