I’ve only heard the first episode, but I like where this podcast’s heart is and I’m interested to hear more.
On the Macintosh.fm website, Mark says,"I want to bring the artistry from the public radio to the Apple community."
He's done just that. Bravo and thank you.
I hope the high production value and scripted nature of this type of podcast is sustainable.
There's a place for the weekly talking heads type of podcasts, and I love many of them, but this is refreshing and great.
Like Radiolab for Apple
This is such a well made podcast. I’ve listened to a whole lot of podcasts, and by and large most of them are blah. This one has the high quality level of something from NPR, plus it’s very interesting and teaches things I never really thought of before. Can’t wait for more episodes.
