Rigorous Rumination

A long-form detailed thrill ride that you don't want to miss. John Siracusa (no z), inventor of podcast follow-up, delivers 100 episodes of thorough, respectful, and delightfully critical review. Not a single episode is a dud.

Siracusa (no 'Z') is a national treasure

These episodes hold up, even in 2017. Any fan of ATP should start here if they want to get the full scoop. And if they don't want that, shame on them.

Old. But not dated

I spent the last 6months going through all 100 episodes. The fact that are now a couple of years old doesn't take anything away from the brilliant observations and explanations John makes. Highly recommended.

The show may be over, but you should still listen to it

It's a sad day today as I listen to the final episode and end my Hypercritical binge. I found out about Hypercritical via the Accidental Tech Podcast (Siracusa's new show) and even though this show ended almost a year before I started listening to it, it remains relevant and insightful. In fact, listening from the future perspective, it's amazing how accurate Siracusa has been. Start with episode 1 and listen in order, this is not one you want to listen through backwards.

The best

What other tech podcast would you recommend after it had already completed its run? Hypercritical stands up so well because John digs into a variety of interesting topics. A powerful intellect paired with a deep commitment to clear explanations - a winning combination. Even when treading into areas in which he is unfamiliar, John delivers insight.

Bring it back!

Siracusa provides a clear and articulate look at technology and the way forward. His critical methodology is something that is severely lacking in most of the devices created by many companies today. The amount of preparation that Siracusa does is astounding and Ben does a phenomenal job keeping Siracusa moving and exciting.

John Siracusa is brilliant and articulate

I've read Siracusa's technical writings for over ten years now. He is just as articulate in speaking as he is in writing. I enjoy his perspective as a fellow lifelong Apple/Mac guy. I don't always agree with him, but he makes his perspective clear. So much of what Apple does doesn't make sense to me, and he helps me understand what the heck is going on at Infinite Loop.

The best of the best.

I recently found this podcast and started on Ep 1. Did not stop untill show 100 ended. John Siracusa is extremely smart yet down to earth too. Cannot recomend this podcast enough.
