    Essential Apple Podcast 219: Meandering Madness

    Essential Apple Podcast 219: Meandering Madness

    Recorded 3rd May 2021

    Jim and Simon and Nick get together again to meander around the news nd some other stuff - this is an extra long show because somehow we ended up with 4 hours of audio! Anyway with some of the more off topic and meandering bits removed its down to a “mere” just over 2 hours (oops sorry about that). Also after such a massive edit the effort of making the show notes quite as tidy as usual was too much to face! So sorry, but all the links should still work even if it isn’t in the usual tidy format... Oh and I don't mention it on the show but we are now available on a bucket more services including Amazon Music - just ask Alexa to play Essential Apple Podcast on Amazon Music... (also a considerable amount of monkeying around with Audacity to get the damn file down to the size required by Pinecast - one failing of Audacity is it tends not to tell you there are updates..)

Lot’s of going ons with people terrified that Apple’s ATT is going to destroy their “surveillance capitalism” business models while Apple tell them attempts to circumvent ATT will not be tolerated. Meanwhile we find out about trees that can bleed metal and a really creepy webcam.

Funny, entertaining, and positive

I live in the US and found your show through Apple News. I now listen to your show every week and enjoy its nice blend of funny moments with current events in technology. I also want to point out the positive nature of the show, since many others don't have the jovial feel as this one does on Apple Podcasts. I find myself smiling at the overall happy nature of the show, and I feel well informed by the end. I have been listening since August, and I look forward to hear what you have to say this September and onward.

So glad the crew is back

I was sorely missing the Mac and Forth show when Mark agreed to change from his Rampant Mumblings to Essential Apple. (thanks Mark!) It's great fun to hear you all talking Apple stuff again. The humor is greatly appreciated as I sit in traffic on my way to and from work. One of my favorite podcasts.

Ron.P ,

the new mac and forth show

This show is a great place to find out what is going on in the world of apple. With almost the entire crew from the mac and forth show there it was great. Even the same sound board. Great job.
