Heartbreaking

It's not The Talk Show without Dan.

So disappointing

John Gruber is the #1 Apple blogger on the internet, lets just get that out of the way. He is also dour, unfocused, mumbles and in general doesn't come across as an engaging personality when speaking live on a podcast… UNLESS he has the right co-host or host. The "Talk Show" produced by 5by5 and Dan Benjamin was outstanding. With the radio ready voice and steady guide in Dan it helped Gruber come alive and created an entertaining and informative 60-90 minutes. Now John Gruber has apparently, and without warning to listeners OR his long time partner Dan Benjamin, taken the title and whole show away to another Podcasting company and produced this new "Talk Show." He is acting as the primary host with guests. Its about as big a disaster as you would expect. This show was terribly unfocused, unentertaining, and frankly unprofessional.

While you can be certain I will continue to follow John Gruber on his excellent website I no longer want to listen to this, the magic is gone and sadly this appears to be the kind of move (and way it was handled) that Gruber has spent years railing against on his website.

I'm not angry, I'm just sad.
