Great for keeping up with Apple

Once great.

Sadly as the length of the grows, the breadth of the hosts views have shrunk. Myke in particular needs to get out of his tiny podcast world bubble.
He’s a bully with a microphone.

Those leaving Macbreak Weekly will likely enjoy this show

Macbreak weekly has become an unlistenable mess with Leo constantly being dismissive of technologies, interrupting other hosts and guests, the “subscribe to TWiT” segment getting longer and longer, a lack of focus on the tech itself and more on politics are all things driving me away from that show and the TWiT network in general.

That is NOT this show. This show has hosts that seem to mesh well enough together, having some interesting, nuanced conversations about some of the news of the week. I don’t find myself hitting the “skip 30 seconds” button too often (like I do with MBW) while listening to this show, which is a mark that the show is doing enough to keep attention. Please keep Leo laporte as far away from this show as possible, don’t even have him on as a guest.
