I listen to a bunch of podcasts throughout the day. Some are general tech, and some are Mac-specific. About a year ago I came across a Podcast who’s sole purpose is to bash the shockingly horrible articles (and their writers) across the web who consistently get the story wrong, or simply don’t “get” Apple, the Mac and iOS.
Angry Mac Bastards (AMB) is a weekly Podcast featuring John C. Welch, Darby Lines and Peter Cohen. When I first saw Peter Cohen’s name on the Podcast, I knew I would love the show because I had followed his work as a writer at Macworld years ago.
AMB spends about an hour or so each week dissecting the Mac-related news from around the web from the previous week. And by dissecting I mean using heavy doses of foul-language to describe their thoughts about the writers who post the typical dribble you find on sites like CultofMac, Gizmodo, ZDNet, 9to5Mac, and more. It’s not that the trio just likes to bash other people’s work, they selectively choose articles that are generally off-base, uninformed, or just completely stupid.
If you don’t mind reading articles that are thrown together with little thought, rumors with no real sources, poorly written articles, or if foul-language bothers you; AMB is definitely NOT for you. But if you want to be entertained for an hour or so, and get the real scoop about all things Apple, AMB may be right up your alley.
You can download individual episodes on the AMB website, or subscribe to the.
