Customer Reviews

Good company and useful

This show keeps me good company when I'm cooking or working around the house. It's fun and easy listening, and pretty much a must for any Apple II fan. I love the various regular segments like looking at a unusual Apple II-related eBay items, or challenging the listener to identify a snippet of music from a classic Apple II game. The guests have been interesting and thought-provoking. Sound issues with Mike in earlier episodes have been resolved, and now I can recommend this with no reservations.

Outstanding!

These guys do an outstanding job of keeping the Apple II alive!

Every episode gets better

Ken and Mike have been puttering around with their Apple II and Apple III computers for many years, and now they bring their accumulated knowledge to the microphone with the Open Apple podcast. There were others that preceded this, but this is one of the most polished podcasts I've heard in the field of retrocomputing. It is un-apologetically 8-bit-ophilc, with a slant towards games and gaming (co-host Ken Gagne has been writing about games for many years), and it is quite common for a guest to join the microphone and participate in their discussion.

Taking a page from the RetroMacCast playbook, Ken and Mike usually discuss eBay items that fit into the 8-bit era of Apple Computer, Inc., and the show is divided up into segments, just like monthly columns in a magazine. One would think that twenty years after the Apple II series was axed by its parent company that all there is to say would have been said by now, but each episode of Open Apple has enough content to overflow and set bit on the one hour mark.

If there was one criticism to make about the podcast, it would be that it has in the past sounded just a bit too scripted, but that is most noticeable in the first year of operation. As the hosts have become more comfortable with the format and how it works, their banter is getting more relaxed and sounds less pre-determined.

If you had an Apple II "back in the day" that you remember with fondness, take a listen to the Open Apple Podcast, and relive those days!
