“I owe much of my love of the Mac and productivity apps to this show. I enjoy the new cohost and most of my issues with the show have nothing to do with this recent change.
MPU episodes take a long time to get off the ground. You can skip the first 10-25 percent of most episodes which is uninteresting followup and meta discussion rather than meat.
Once you have listened to this show for about a year, the episode topics, app recommendations, and guests start to become very repetitive. Occasional guests bring something great to the table but it is difficult to sift through. All of the great tips on this show are thrilling at first but after a while, how many times do I need to hear about Bartender, SaneBox, and Hazel?
It is also clear that app sponsors get more attention in discussion while other software is more often ignored. One of many examples is PDF Pen which is a buggy, overpriced, slow mess of an app on Mac and especially iOS, but gets discussed all the time. On the flip side, PDF Expert has never received the same treatment, even though it is adored by Apple fans.
Anyway. Just my two cents. This show is great but I think it has lost its repeat listening worth over the years.”
