Way bad!

I have listened for several years, but I can not take it anymore. The host pontificates about Apple products but seems to own none of them. What gives? Too much political talk as well. I don’t care about your viewpoints on the US. Please remove your wife and all the chatter at the beginning...unlistenable. Remove the seemingly endless musical (noise) interlude in the middle. Dalrymple is fine, and has great insights. It is more efficient to just listen to the Dalrymple Show podcast without all the other baggage and padding. I’m out.

Technology Manager

I have been listening to Shawn Kings for over a decade. I miss his 10 minute news of the day pod casts, and will always remember his day after September 11 pod cast.Since then I have relied on Shawn and his cast of character to provide me thoughtful insight on the consumer and private sector point of view. I work in the educational technology arena and these brilliantly articulated perspectives help me to gauge and understand what Apple is doing and why they continue to hurt their relationship in the enterprise education market.In addition products and computer techniques covered have and continue to be useful in improving the quality and joy of my personal journey with the Macintosh.

Worth listening to

Bombastic Apple idolatry from a self-appointed high priest of all things Apple.

A Tech Podcast that Remains Relevant.

Tech podcasts are a dime a dozen, but most of the other ones I've listened to are either nasty echo-chamber gossip, long-and-drawn-out-commerciais, or panels full of gray-haired Boomers trying to come to terms with new developments by oversimplifying them (while being reassured by one or two genuine tech journalists).Your Mac Life remains the one I listen to every week. Still an intelligent, opinionated, and humorous review of the week's consumer technology events that are most likely to be of interest to Mac and iOS users. The show also continues to involve its listening audience, both live during the broadcast, and in emails about issues that listeners have questions/comments about.The show's undergone a few changes over the years. After a relocation, the show left behind two excellent cohosts who contributed a great deal. Host Shawn King is currently flying solo and doing a great job with it (despite his avowed preference for having someone close at hand to converse with).The new Starting Point Photography segment—an introduction to Shawn's newest venture aimed at training beginning photographers to take better pictures—is occasionally excellent. Tips and suggestions for helping nonprofessionals, taught by someone who explains things very well, indeed.All well worth listening to, and well worth supporting.

Better Mac Podcasts Out There Now

Found this podcast via a mention on Twitter so I thought I'd check it out. From what I understand this podcast has been around forever. Not sure what the appeal is though. Way to much rambling about how Shawn's day went etc. (though that may appeal long time listeners who feel they know him and "get it") This podcast reminds me of our local FM classic rock morning show. May appeal to the over 50 crowd. Not my cup of tea.

Amazing Podcast

I have been listening to Shawn King for years. His show has preexisted podcasts. His experience & knowledge on Apple has always been a great resource.

A must for Apple users.

For Apple product conversation, YML is my favorite. Very professional and entertaining stuff.

Long Time Listener - Still think it's the best Mac-related show around

I've been listening to "Your Mac Life" basically since its inception - and to the prior version as well - long before the birth of "Podcasts'. It was one of the first internet broadcasts that I can recall relating to as a new Mac user back in the late 1990's, and is one of the only shows I listen to on a regular basis that I truly enjoy so much I have hardly ever missed an episode. Shawn's friendly, fun and sometimes ferocious look at all things Mac have always kept me feeling as if I were in a private club - where users gather to talk about how this machine - and later the products that came out of the company that made the machine - affected their lives. It is at once a casual conversation amongst friends, a technical show about what to do with your "Mac" stuff - and occasionally a showcase for useful products and information. The camaraderie amongst the cast always seems to include the listener - you feel as if you are hanging out with a bunch of people who would totally get why you're spending all of your spare time with your Mac and i-Things. Sly's shout-outs (which include birthday and anniversary wishes) add to the feeling that you are amongst friends -- This is one of the few long-lasting shows that still retains that exciting feeling of the early days of the Internet - when it was a smaller community who all shared their enthusiasm for all things ( in this case, Apple). Less technical than other programs, Shawn is also quick to dispel rumors - sparing endless hours of wondering about what the next big product will be. His viewpoints, and those of his co-hosts, are fresh, feel honest, and most of all are enthusiastic. And with the Social Media integration, which the show has done since the days of Mailing Lists, the show becomes not just about his Mac life, but ours too.
