Pragmatic is a discussion show contemplating the practical application of technology. Exploring the real world trade offs we look at how great ideas are transformed into products and services that can change our lives. Nothing is as simple as it seems.
A Mixed Bag
Vic joins John to go through a mixed bag of topics including the two most recent Apple Events, selling lenses, the new 5x iPhone Pro Max Lens, Johns day job company being potentially bought and split as well as the Soundbooth and some conference speaking.
Vic joins John to look at the history of Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality as we pre-assess the pros and cons of AR and VR and the upcoming Apple Vision Pro.
Apple Watch Evolution
With some initial discussion of the Twitter Appocalypse and M2 Mac Mini, John and Vic dive into the Apple Watchs evolution since 2015 to present and discuss whether or the newest Apple Watch design can be thought of as the ultimate Ultra.
Following Johns appearance on Episode 100 of Podcasting 2.0, John is joined by Dave Jones to workshop the soundbites tag enhancements, as well as touch on BitCoin and Crypto strengths and weaknesses in the longer term.
Not Turning It Into A Flower Pot
Clay joins John to walk through the key moments of the WWDC keynote for 2022 and look at what each means for us and also the broader populace. Whilst John is sad about the Trash Can being Ventura-canned, there were lots of things to smile about too.
Russell returns to Pragmatic to discuss his experiences with renewable energy, both the Model S and Model 3 and we dive into the finer issues with glanceless controls and other concerns regarding Tesla's User Interface.
One of my favorite Podcast
John Chidgey is an intelligent and qualified guy, regardless of whether he finds all of the details he discusses; which he may, I am not saying that he doesn’t.
That last sentence was more applicable to my other favorite Podcast, which he also does. It is called Causality. If you have not, check it out. It has very in depth discussion of the engineering behind tragedies of things like train wrecks or buildings collapsing.
I am about to graduate with mechanical engineering degree, and I’ve learned a fair amount of stuff from his podcasts.
He helps with a lot of abstract theories and seeing things you would not often notice.
Anyways, I just started listening to this one, and it seems good, although there isn’t as much detail from what I can tell; with that said, they have entirely different purposes so that should be of no surprise.
A must listen
Nothing is as simple as it seems and John explores these beautifully. A great show exploring the practical applications of our technologies.

Thorough examination of varied tech topics
John certainly adds his particular and passionate style to disseminate knowledge on a broad base of topics in a thorough way while being well supported by Ben. I recently heard this podcast show mentioned on another podcast and started at the beginning and have enjoyed each episode so far. I look forward to catching up to the rest of the audience. Thanks John & Ben for the episodes.
