This podcast would be a lot shorter and easier to listen to if the blabbing and going off track would be kept to a minimum. Plus, I can’t stand the accent. Sorry 🤷🏼‍♂️

In the most recent episode, Zac had a racist outburst about Phil Schiller being replaced with “another old white guy,” and then the two boys spent the last ten minutes going on about vaccines. I could turn on CNN if I wanted this leftist garbage.

The show is great but Zac’s audio (including this week) is often too distracting to listen to.

Fantastic Podcast keep it up!

I like the content and conversation, but one of the hosts (the American) sounds like he’s locked in a bathroom and we’re listening from the other side of the door. A little annoying, so I don't listen on a regular basis.Read full review »

After months of listening I have given up. Ben comes across a nice guy with lots of insightful comments from a developers perspective, but he is usually interrupted and spoken over by Zac who is simply insufferable. There are better Apple podcasts.

I wanted to like this but the host manages to say ‘like’ about 50 times 5-7 min into the latest episode, followed by ‘right?’ around 30 times. @host - polish up your English, listening to your conversation is somewhat dull and you do not come across as a particularly intelligent person with a...Read full review »

This used to be my favorite Apple Product podcast. It was nice to hear from relatable lay users of Apple products. But I’m considering stop listening this podcast. But honestly, I’ve been having a hard time relating to the host Zac. As someone else said it, looks like his focus is now on Space...Read full review »

I previously rated your podcast at 5 stars. Recently though, one of you has forgotten that you’re producing a professional podcast and have begun allowing all of the background noise of your house into the podcast. Very annoying. I’ll be unsubscribing now. Quite unfortunate, because I really...Read full review »

I enjoy the weekly recap of the news and color commentary, but the audio has really dropped in quality substantially on Zac’s side (seems to be since he’s moved his focus to his Space site over 9to5Mac). I hate to say it, but he’s not carrying his weight in the show anymore, between constant...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to this podcast for years. It’s great! They really understand the products and have a great knowledge base of Apple’s products and history.
Bart18ley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/20
... but why is it taking so long for the weekly podcast to get online on Apple podcasts. It’s not even there by Friday morning, but recorded well before that. Or do I have that wrong? Otherwise 5 stars + In any case, as a sidelight, been pretty cool over the past 4 years or so to tag along with...Read full review »

Benjamin is quite good at giving realistic Apple reviews. He’s good at calling out dumb decisions by Apple and giving props when deserved. Zac feels more like an Apple spokesman and it grows tiresome. Also, where did chapter support go? Used to be so helpful to only listen to topics I care...Read full review »

How can you be an Apple fan and not tune in to every episode? This podcast is clean, useful, and incredibly entertaining. Never delete your subscription, unless Apple happens to suddenly go out of business! These guys are hard-core Apples. The episodes are filled with knowledgable discussions...Read full review »

These guys do a great job - one of the few podcasts I wish I could be part of.

Good
Lome Martins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/20
Interesting and informative but gos off topic sometimes eg. They said they would be talking about Apple Watch but ended up talking about treadmills
Wamel Camel via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 09/14/20
I’ve been listening to these guys for several years now. Always keeps me up to date with Apple News, roumours and general tech stories. Keep up the good work guys. 👍
kidd78 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/11/20
Sadly this is the most thorougher podcast on Apple issues since Cnet dropped Brian tong and the Apple byte. I’m so glad Brian is back with his new independent podcast Apple Bitz!! Unlike these two, he was funny and entertaining and instead of effectively just making up a constant stream of...Read full review »

Hi
It’s amazing 😎🙃🙃
deee ?457 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/20
This week show starting off with a discussion of going to a theater to see “The Banker” and waiting on the credits to see if Apple is mentioned anywhere . I think Zac will be best to stick to the topics they wish to discuss as it pertains to the show and audience but there are topics as the one...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to this podcast for the past 6 years and over that period of time, my interest in the show has begun to wane. It’s not because of the topics of the show, but mostly because Zac has mentioned in past episodes prioritizing Apple products over his own family, which I’ve found...Read full review »
ChewLoma via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/20
Ummmm the name of the podcast is “9to5Mac” which is the first clue that the podcast is about Apple products. I love the in-depth coverage Zach and Ben give us. I learn so much from you guys. Please keep doing what you are doing.
Frespirt1002 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/20
I’ve been listening to 9to5mac happy hour for a long time. The hosts do a great job and are fun to listen to if you like to geek out on Apple stuff. Just know going in that Zac (not Benjamin) is a super passionate Apple fanboy who has blinders on most of time.
aced411 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
The discussions about Apple tech/news stories are interesting but limited slightly in my view by Zac’s eagerness to wrap up a segment, only to then start a new chapter to talk about his latest personal experience running a marathon with Apple Watch, or updating his laptop for example. These...Read full review »

This is a great podcast if you want to keep up to date with anything Apple related from software to hardware, special events and WWDC events. They’re both really honest too, with iOS 13 release they really do talk honestly about how buggy it is and also talk about predictions for the future, iOS...Read full review »

I have been listening to podcasts for a long time now and I have been back and forth with this podcast. From what I have heard the past 2 or 3 episodes have me now keeping me subscribed and not bailing out on unsubscribing! Keep it up guys and love the great stuff on technology!!!!

I have subscribed to this podcast for about two years now and have finally decided to write a short review. I look forward to seeing this podcast drop into the podcast app each week. The subject matter is timely and the level of detail is appropriate. I love the discussions about the Apple...Read full review »

Update...tried this podcast again. Still one star. The British guy is fine, but the other guy just drones on as well as talking way too much about boring stuff. I find myself skipping ahead every time he talks. Cannot he be more succinct and less tedious and irritating. His voice and delivery...Read full review »
Koochiboo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/19
The 2 hosts most of the time are trying to think what they want to say on the fly and there are way too many little pauses. Vocabulary is the same of a teenager. Too many “like” and “kind”. Although I like the information being shared, I see myself frequently just quitting after 15 minutes. This...Read full review »

Added this show to my collection of great shows with details about Apple software and technology. Keep it up!
kylesethgray via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/19
This is one of my favourite all-things-Apple podcasts. There’s a real nice respectful chemistry between the presenters and Zac sounds like really sweet guy.
Marcus Jones66 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 09/29/19
Give these guys a listen. I have just recently discovered their Podcast, nice relaxing and informative conversation about Apple stuff, great for me while walking my dogs. Greetings from Poland and keep up the good work 👍 Shepski P.S Your new microphone sounds good to me!
CMDR Shepski via Apple Podcasts · Poland · 09/29/19
Consistently one of my favorite to come across my feed. Long running, very knowledgeable hosts!

Good stuff
Tobiasolaisen via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 09/15/19
9to5MAc Happy Hour is my favorite show on Apple Podcasts .. Zack & Benjamin discuss everything in details and present it in interesting way.
mytawalbeh via Apple Podcasts · United Arab Emirates · 09/02/19
It's good that they, the 9 to 5 Mac the website, goes through everything in detail; I think they are a bit too uncritical of Apple. Example, Apple recorded people grossly breaching privacy but when that happened this podcast barely talked about the subject and dismissed it.Read full review »
Canberran Dave via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/28/19
If you want to stay up to date with Apple news this is the definitive show. Other Apple shows hosts try to make it all about themselves but these two guys stick to the news and keep everything informative. Zac can be major cringe when he talks about "diversity" or Brexit but it's rare...Read full review »

Maybe not make snide remarks about the United Kingdom cutting its self off from the rest of the world eh! If we want our independence from the corrupt EU then that is our choice.probably concentrate on the woes of your country. Actually used to like this podcast until you started spouting Crap.
Lazerbeam123 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/24/19
I love this podcast, it is extremely informative for me. Always learn something new. Highly recommended.
