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.
Amazing. Well-produced educational podcast
I'm so excited for future episodes. I listen to many podcasts, a lot of them discussing Apple-related topics, but Welcome to Macintosh is unique: tightly focused, well-edited, and fascinating. The level of polish feels like it's on episode 103, not 3. Keep it up!
The first high-quality Apple podcast
I love that this podcast takes production value seriously. Succinct editing, well conducted interviews, appropriate use of music, and of course good storytelling make this a must -subscribe podcast for anyone interested in Apple.
If you've been less than satisfied listening to endless episodes filled with unedited, unproduced, personality-driven blather about Apple (sometimes, if they get to it) this podcast is for you.
