Great podcast! But....

Love the show content, however the sound quality is terrible!! Please fix the issue, because I want to continue listening to this podcast. Thanks!

Like the new addition

I enjoy the knowledgeable and ever insightful Horace and Anders. The addition of Judd Rubin added some good back and forth and a spit of humor. The discussion of Apple’s new concept of longer lasting offerings was interesting. One wonders if this shift to increased durability also speaks of an inability to bring revolutionary and paradigm shifting new tech on a semi-annual basis as Apple has done in the past. Or at least no faster than their competitors can do so or create their own versions. Mr. Rubin was useful to hear how generally informed but not expert end users may react to these moves. Will keep listening.

Great content; Lousy audio quality

Horace really needs to invest in a good microphone and recording setup. This is do-able in 2020, even for a globe trotter like Horace, using a portable mic, audio interface, and iPad.
