Want to know how good the show is?

I installed iTunes to write a positive review. AND I had to recover my password.

Brett is great at asking interesting questions instead of just getting the same origin story anybody else could. The show was sadly underpromoted on the old network, so I was late to the party, but I'm glad I showed up.

An essential subscription

Systematic was my first podcast subscription back when it was on 5by5.

I came for the Mac nerdery and stayed for the heartwarming humanity. Brett is a refreshing open book about living with mental illness while pursuing a life of his own authorship since leaving Engadget. He's genuinely curious and skillful at interviewing a brilliant, diverse, and hilarious guest list.

I'm also proud to say listening to this show has cost me a small fortune in amazing software and gadget recommendations I would never have discovered that have made my digital life way easier.
