Great hosts; Great Coverage!; It likes listening to old friends banter about the tech they love! I couldn’t be more happy to be a listener and will continue to be I’m sure for many years to come!

Very disparaging type of woke politics
Yagoax via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 04/10/22
There should be a plus subscription for macbreak without Andy parts. Put the ads back and fill his parts. At least, ads are useful! What a waste!

I never miss a show. It’s always informative and entertaining even when there is no Apple news.
Salvatore V. Barrera via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/06/22
Great show every week. Always looking forward to it. Keep it up!
Mykelx91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/22
Firstly, the show has some entertaining moments, without a doubt. But its rarely sticking to the subject title and more or less wobbles about the personal tech preferences, movie preferences, science fiction book tips and product placement and very shallow analysis of big tech announcements and...Read full review »

Always interesting. Some weeks are slow, other jam-packed.

The ongoing approach of Alex Lindsay makes this program unwatchable - I don’t care about office hours and I don’t want to hear his really negative approach to free market, the show has gone down the pan, avoid
Pub Daddy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/18/21
Listen to Leo “Break time is over!” Laporte, Andy “You’re welcome! - however!” Ihnatko, Rene “So super salty” Ritchie and Alex “The thing is is that” Lindsay talk about the Apple news, rumours and speculation every week. I have mostly found the show to be very informative and reasonably...Read full review »

Lately the way he and Andy argue with Alex is a bit weird. I cringe hearing them pile on Alex because he has the “wrong opinion “. The world is overwhelming political, keep that train of thought out of tech. Success reveals who we are.

This is probably the best Apple-centric podcast I’ve run across in a long time. BUT…Andy is the weak link and is THE main reason I can’t rate this podcast higher. He rambles and takes too long to make a point. In fact, I’ve gotten to where I just skip ahead 15 seconds at a time when he starts...Read full review »

I absolutely love this show, this is the only podcast I look forward to every single week, exact one thing. I will no longer will give 5 stars until Andy keeps on making things up. I do have respect for Andy, but its very obvious when his opinions are simply “vaporwear” and its extremely...Read full review »

I have been a watcher of this podcast almost since the beginning . I have watched them move from the original house to the brick house and then to the new studio. The video production quality has also increased . Thanks to the wealth of knowledge of Leo, Alex, Andy and then Renee every week we...Read full review »

I’ve been watching MacBreak weekly since season one. It’s just fun to tune in and listen to all the latest Apple news or developments. You gain a lot of information from the show too. Sure, some you can find out from the news, but there’s also opinion and interpretation that the panel offers,...Read full review »

MacBreak Weekly rounds out my IT and corporate learning from the TWIT network for my home computing.
RaceH2O via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/21
The persons on this show are usually well informed and interesting to listen to. I am a long time Apple fan and this is one of the main ways I stay up to date on what’s going on in the Mac and iOS ecosystem. I miss Lori and sometimes Andy rambles a bit but I do like the rotation of guests each...Read full review »

Never miss a show! Keep up the great work.
Krazyleaf via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/31/21
Great show with fantastic and entertaining hosts. It could use a bit more Alex L 😀Renee provides the analysis and insight. Andy provides entertaining commentary and provides joe public’s views on the Apple News.

Been listening for a long time and this is one of my favorite podcasts with great personalities.

Mr Laport and exceptional guests in a high quality discussion.
TX-Tarheel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/13/21
I’ve been subscribed since the beginning, it's the only Apple news/discussion show I need. I've listened/watched many others over the years, but this is the only one I've stuck with.Read full review »

Please replace Andy with some that likes and uses Apple products. He spends to much time ragging on them. The man can’t speak a complete sentence without restarting several times.
Macclone via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/20
If you want Mac news this is a must. On a long drive or a 4 mile walk I always listen to MacBreak Weekly. Leo Laporte Rene Richie Andy Ihnatko and all the other regular host are a wealth of information!
NJ Rules via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/14/20
Had to stop listening this week, Rene’s constant excuse making for Apple, and then banging on the other big names was too much.

Ihnatko! Ihnatko! Ihnatko! Goodness people are sensitive to hearing differing opinions these days. I get it. The world is so full of nonsense that we all need an escape sometimes and sometimes we need that escape to be absolute in its effectiveness. However, these discussions are about real...Read full review »

I think your current panel is the best you have had in place for many years. Lori Gil has been a delight, and I'm glad she is "full-time" now. I always get something out of the show. Every panel member contributes something important every week. I must agree with some of the previous...Read full review »

Update 3/5/20- sorry but I’ve decided to unsubscribe. Less than 10’ in and Andy goes off on his political rant. Stopped, deleted. Original - Andy needs to keep his political thoughts to himself or on his own show where people can choose to listen or not. I would think Leo wants to keep and draw...Read full review »

This is a must watch show every week for me. There is too many people and talking over the other too much.
carlosrsr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/20
While the Apple talk is great, lately this show has become a left leaning political wonk show. I don’t care if you have different political beliefs but please stop being so derogatory concerning the other side of the political aisle. There are some conservative tech enthusiasts that would like to...Read full review »
Choppers17 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/20
Love the content of the show but please, more Alex Lindsay and less Andy Ihnatko, he has become less and less coherent over the years. Nice enough guy but he stumbles through half of what he says.
A1M B1G via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/08/20
Always made time to watch MacBreak, Not so much with Andy Ihnatko. Andy seem’s to be in the show for His benefit not mine. Just not that good with his running the topics away from the show’s direction. Maybe He needs to get a better paying job with someone else so that he can get better tech.
BBHOG via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/20
Please please please replace Andy Ihnatko with Lori Gil. It is becoming tiring listening to him use this show as a political platform. I can appreciate balanced reporting on the pros and cons of the Apple ecosystem, but his far left opinions are woven into every issue. If I want politics I’ll...Read full review »

I belive that Apple is providing the tools to improve their digital content interaction. So it wasn't pushed out as a requirement, but an option to improve the impact of the publication.Read full review »

Andy keeps saying “piece of music.” Why not just say “music” and why keep saying “PIECE OF music” You would think a professional writer would be less... ummm... how do I say this nicely.... well... I’ll be nice and just not say it... *shaking my head*

These are three extremely knowledgeable Apple tech journalists who are very entertaining. The show covers All Things Mac and often some related items as well. Hugely...Read full review »

I used to be a fan of MacBreak weekly, but thought it went down hill when Leo and Andy seem to become so Anti Apple. Thank goodness for Rene who was more objective and logical about Apple Tech. However recently - Jan 2018, I am happy that Leo is now more open minded. For 2018 shows so far, it is...Read full review »

It's just too much rambling. It was good when Leo said that he wanted to make it fit on a CD like 80 minutes tops. Now it runs 2 hours and 4 minute commercials. Andy tries to be funny which is OK. Devorak used to try to keep in on point until Leo starts asking about the good old days and...Read full review »
zillow111us via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/17
This show being tied to Apple, is too frequent because Apple just doesn't have that much news. Of course, Andy is blabbermouth and annoying but Rene is always spot on and Alex provides a wonderful, practical perspective. Leo is just his typical overbearing self...Read full review »

TWiT has grown far too political for my tastes. I have observed this trend across several twit shows, but this week's show (1/31/17) marks the first time I was actually spurred to turn the program off midway through strictly because of the political drudgery. I turn to tech podcasts when I...Read full review »

I used to love this podcast. All of the other guests are great, but I get so bored listening to non-succinct Andy and his negativity about Apple. Especially when he drones on negatively about their prices. I don't care if he thinks they are overpriced (obviously, Apple is doing fine!), and I...Read full review »
