Customer Reviews

Off to an excellent start!

I usually don't write reviews for podcasts with only one episode under their belt, but the inaugural episode of Upgrade was good enough to warrant an exception to that rule. Sometimes you can just tell a show is going to be great. I enjoyed the entire episode, and more importantly, I expect this show to maintain that level of quality given the track record of the hosts.

Jason Snell is obviously extremely knowledgeable and insightful when it comes to anything technology-related, particularly when it comes to Apple. I'm looking forward to hearing his thoughts on Apple, as well as other tech companies I don't hear him talk about as much, like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc. The man knows how to put together excellent podcasts, as demonstrated by podcasts like The Incomparable.

Myke Hurley, whom I first heard of when his podcasts moved to the 5by5 network, has also become someone whose opinion I respect and whose podcasts I look forward to each week. Myke's new podcast network, Relay FM, is already impressive, despite being a few weeks old. Some shows like Connected are familiar since they moved from 5by5 to Relay FM with the same format and hosts, but the new shows like Upgrade and Analog(ue) are proving to be just as impressive and somehow instantly familiar.

I'll update this review if Upgrade takes a serious nosedive, but honestly, I don't see that happening. Upgrade has already earned a spot in my podcast player's "Top Shelf" playlist.

Technology Contextualized

Jason Snell is a veteran podcaster who has been writing about Apple and technology for almost twenty years. That experience gives him a perspective to put today’s tech stories into context in a way that few other podcasters can, which is terrific. Combined with Myke Hurley’s expert interviewing skills, the two make a great team.


Another great podcast on the Relay network. Myke and Jason have good chemistry. Enjoy hearing what they have to say.
