Smart, Supportive, and Helpful
I've been a fan of MacSparky for years. But the pair of David and Rosemary unlocks a new frontier of learning opportunity. Love the additional resources and downloads. As a podcaster, I know how much work a show like this is. Thank you so much for your dedication and please, please take care of yourselves... you've gone and done it again, quickly becoming a central piece of our podcast diet and we don't want either of you to burn out! ;-)
Accessible entry point for a fascinating topic
Automation is such a benefit, but it can be hard to know where to start. It's great to hear a show like this that really fills a need. The first two episodes have been great. I've adopted some of the ideas they've talked about, and it's also got my brain working on new stuff that's particular to my own life and work. I'm excited to continue down this road with them!
