Sir Felgar ,

Finally making a review on a great podcast

Longtime listener since the very beginning, or very nearly so. When I was doing research in Italy in the winter of 2009, I brought the back catalog of a year or so podcasts and listened to them all while eating and walking around Rome. I've stayed with James and John for 12 years now and will continue to listen to them until they run out of ideas, which I hope they never do. Keep up the good work and remember it's not old... it's retroooo.

Great podcast for vintage mac lovers

Recently discovered this podcast. It is well done with great info. I'm working through the entire series and loving it.

Love the show, but the move to Facebook is bad news!

Come on, James & John!

Given the egregious privacy violations, ongoing corruption of democracies, selling of services and people's data, blatant lies in congressional and parliamentary testimony, and failure to effectively weed out malicious, even evil actors, embracing Facebook was absolutely the wrong move.

Please reconsider your decision. You guys strike me as reasonable, intelligent, and aware podcasters, who even extol the virtues of a simpler time, so it was staggering to learn of this action.
