Joe Kelley and Ken Mitchell are lifelong friends from Houston, Texas. Ken has been an Apple fanboy since he bought his ][e back in the 80s. Joe is a 25 year IT veteran, but a more recent convert who readily admits to drinking the Kool-Aid. Together, they offer a unique perspective on the world of Apple. You won't find any east or west coast political correctness here.

So funny and awesome to listen to!
I agree. Thank you Catfish!
And to Ken Mitchell, I also went jet skiing. Lol I bought my first Mac last month for college and I am the only person in my family to even own one and will never use a PC ever again. My decision to buy my macbook pro was actually influenced by Mr. Mitchell. Him being a good friend, to go mac and push the PC ancient crap to the side was as easy as dropping a rock. Going into the film business, all apple products are top quality for such hobbies and careers. The editing software is incomparable to that which comes with PC. So man up y'all PC panzies, shut up, and mac up.
Finally! Something Different from the Mac Community
Joe and Ken obviously have a good time doing this podcast. Their fun is contageous and it's great to hear from someone NOT on the east or west coast. They never fail to put a smile on my face and I always learn something from every podcast. They don't seem to have any sponsors to please, so you know you're getting their honest opinions (especially when it comes to their great software picks). If you're a Mac fan, this podcast is for you. God bless Texas and the MacTexans!
