A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 304. We try out a little something new on this episode. I invited my friends Victor (Typical Mac User) and Ken (Mac OS Ken) over to chat about all things Mac, but did it without any prep, outlines, or show notes. Take a listen to what happens when you just get a couple of Mac geeks on Skype and start gabbing.
