Lefty Leo strikes again. It would really be nice if the MacBreak show was less about politics. I should not be able to tell that Leo is a left wing communist. Andy is a nice guy but he belongs on a show more about tech that he can talk to his hearts desire. He goes on and on without taking a...Read full review »

Leo is a terrific host, and a smart enough broadcaster to know that this show is broken. But he makes no changes, either out of friendship or inertia. Alex's POV is pretty niche, and Andy's rambling is unlistenable. Jason should be the centerpiece of the reboot, with two new hosts....and...Read full review »

Leo, let your guests speak, you’re interrupting them and not listening. Further, do your research before a show.

They discuss lots of good Apple topics, but they side train too much. Leo and Andy are very left leaning bias, and it shows. Andy also always rambles without really saying anything. I’ve been listening for a while, but it’s definitely not very good anymore.

The best Mac show around.
adnani99 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/22
After a long absence from listening to the show, I decided to give it another try and within the first 10 minutes, the fear mongering about Covid started again. Andy’s take on masks is antiquated and misinformed. Typical left-wing narrative on a tech show is highly disappointing. Politics has no...Read full review »

Love Leo and the gang!
Oli-Vancouver via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/21/22
Apparently trump supporters got upset because the hosts simply stated what the rest of the nation is observing. That triggered the “you know who’s”. Anyway, this is a great show and I have been listening or watching Leo for two decades I think now.

I am a longtime listener to the show and I love it. However, I am getting increasingly aggravated with how pretentious Alex Lindsey is. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to video but he is starting to come off really elitist. It’s also started to become a long plug for his office hours...Read full review »

Oh goodness. I like the fundamentals of the show. Leo is great at transitioning with his broadcasting chops, and is a true old school. Rene, who is now with YouTube, was super (Apple) knowledgeable and clever. Jason (just replaced Rene) fills Rene’s spot beautifully. Alex is professional and the...Read full review »

This liberal clown car is awful. Leo used to be tolerable. Andy is a has been who uses 10k words when 3 are sufficient. Most reviews agree with this.

Dei faste gjestane har gode diskusjoner omkring den tekniske utviklinga, med fokus på Apple sine produkter.

“POLITICAL AFFIRMATION FOR THE WEAK MINDED FROM THE NARROW MINDED” Great move Rene leaving this Dumpster Fire of Political Bias.

Keep it up Leo and crew!
RobErt_the_Reviewer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/22
I’m a long listener, but not anymore. Leo and Andy need to keep their politics to themselves. This is or was a tech show! Also, if someone would tell Andy that he doesn’t get paid by the word, making him get to his point quickly; and if Leo would keep his ads to 1-2 minutes instead of a rambling...Read full review »

Macbreak Weekly has been a staple of my listening for years. I have never put in a review for the show for some reason and now that Jason Snell is on the show I definitely have no excuse. I love the shows opinions and view of all things Apple and the knowledge Jason brings (Rene definitely also...Read full review »

This show and TWIT are on my heavy rotation and have been for years!
KukSoolAppa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/11/22
I am a longtime listener to this show. However, I am seriously considering dropping it from my queue. Between the constant Andy / Alex bickering (or more properly, Andy taking issue with many things Alex says in a very patronizing way) and the introduction of gender politics into the show, its...Read full review »

Still love the show… but for the love of all things good… PLEASE close your mouth Leo when you are crunching on Cheez Balls (done during the early part of the show on episode 823). OMG. Or better yet… do not eat while on air.
drewbombard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/22
All the people here complaining about the lack of political balance are the same people who believed January 6 was another day at the office. If you want balance in your politics, then stop acting insane. Anyway, this is my favorite Apple podcast. The panel is well assembled because they...Read full review »

I have a hard time listening to the show anymore. Andy just drones on and on. His affectations are so grating. Two minutes to make a 10 second point. Skipping over his long winded comments is just too much trouble.
t9mike via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/15/22
I’ve been following Leo Laporte since the Tech TV days and as soon as podcasting came around, I quickly got on board with Twit. I love what they do on this and the other Twit podcasts.
dsalmon9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/22
I’ve always loved the show but I’m so tired of their one-sided political conversations. Balance would be nice.
JasonBrad via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/02/22
Show used to be good but Andy has made it unlistenable for me.
JetLawyerIN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/26/22
It is astonishing, given the vast podcasting experience and tech savvy, that a show like this consists of two or three people constantly interrupting and talking over each other. The audio mixing, despite lavish spending on studio equipment, is so annoying that I quit listening. You would think...Read full review »

Like the info and comments but Andy is out of control, he talks over people and takes too long to make a point. His semi stuttering is painful. He needs to be replaced. Maybe with a female view that is currently missing

The team is great and a very well knowledged and all Mac products. I especially like the app picks each guest talks about. It's nice to buy an app that has been tested and trusted by these guys! One of a few great podcasts I watch weekly.Read full review »

Annoying guest Ihnatko, increasingly hostile to Apple. As apple fan, I want to enjoy being a fan. No such need for anti apple guest. Get rid of Ihnatko!!!
MarkOei via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/09/22
Enjoy all the episodes.
jaygee177 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/05/22
I spend most of my time skipping over Andy and his long winded unthought out rants . Im not here to listen to his left wing views. It used to be a tech show. Maybe try going back to that.
Rob1215 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/22
Unlistenable. Leo constantly shoves his political views into everything. Not sure what happened to him. Always talking over and arguing with the only reasonable voice, Alex Lindsay. Perhaps if they return to apple talk so will I.
TKolby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/22
I love Leo, Rene, and even Andy despite his rants, but Alex has become increasing intolerable to the point where I can’t stand listening anymore. I like that everyone pushes back on what he says, but’he’s aggressively smug and contrarian ’ll the time. The others seem to get noticeably annoyed...Read full review »

I’ve been listening and watching since I can remember, but not as much lately. When I do there is liberal use of the skip button. Or as I call, “The Andy Button”. He just cannot make his point concisely. Why use 20 words when you cans stretch it out to 500?
RobCA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/22
As a slightly geeky regular person I find this podcast helpful and entertaining. It keeps me up on the latest Mac, iPad, and iPhone news. Leo is down to Earth and has a good grasp of the technology.
WillHH1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/22
I’ve been listening to the show for many years but since the reintroduction of Alex Lindsay it’s declined significantly. I enjoy the musings of Andy and Rene, but Alex is insufferable. While the other are capable of balanced discussion Alex is an absolute Apple apologist. Recently I simply...Read full review »

Leo LaPorte used to be the best name in tech shows, be them on the TV, radio, or podcasts. Somewhere along the lines his programs all went off the rails and have become a real train wreck, it’s almost painful to watch. The hosts here are pretty bad: Leo is just bored and driven by stretching out...Read full review »

Been listening to TWiT since 2012, MacBreak is one of my favorite shows to watch. Leo, Alex, Rene, and Andy are very knowledgeable in Apple and other tech. I listen to the show every week Also, Glad that TWiT started Club TWiT, love the no ads and discord community.
nathanmarkley via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/11/21
Andy has no actual knowledge and goes on and on without providing any actual insight. Show has become too political
