Back in August of 2015 the Capital Macintosh User Group (CapMac) had Bryan Chaffin from the Mac Observer as the guest speaker. During his presentation he mentioned a couple of podcasts that the Mac Observer produces. His presentation was interesting and I have long listened to tech podcasts so I subscribed to their “Apple Context Machine Podcast” and “Mac Geek Gab Podcast.” I have since enjoyed listening to these two weekly
As the Mac Observer promotion explains:
- The Apple Context Machine is Mac, iPhone, and iPod news and
analysis that puts the facts in perspective, brought to you
with a sense of humor. Hosts Jeff Gamet and Bryan Chaffin put
the Apple world into context. Subscribe

- Mac Geek Gab – Dave Hamilton and John F. Braun come
together weekly to discuss things of interest to Mac geeks,
yet present them in a way that’s both entertaining and
informative for the average listener. Subscribe to

As I mentioned, I have found both of these podcasts interesting, but Mac Geek Gab I like in particular because it covers more technical issues with the Mac, OS X, and iOS. One of the slogans they are always using is ‘learn three new things from each podcast.” I have to say that I find myself learning at least that many new things. It is one of those podcasts that I can’t just have playing while I am doing other things. I find that I have to often stop the podcast to make notes for future reference.
If you like podcasts and are into the technical side of things OS X and iOS, you will find the Mac Geek Gab podcast very informative.
