A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 171. I’m often asked about the process I go through each week to produce the Maccast. I think I’ve covered the topic at a high level in the past, but I’ve never gone too deep into the workflow. It’s time to change that. This week I share with you the tools, apps, tips and tricks that I use to get the show ready for production each week.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 476. It’s another rather slow news week and we could continue to talk about the newest batch of iWatch rumors… yawn. No. Instead, many of you have been asking me to go over Mac storage solutions. You know, NAS, RAID, Media Servers and the like? It’s a big topic, so I brought in our friend Dave Hamilton (The Mac Observer and Mac Geek Gab podcast) and we talked about which storage solutions are best suited for your various storage needs.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Special episode. Happy new year. I’m working hard on the first episode of the tenth season of the Maccast, but the holidays and a nasty round of could and flu has slowed me down just a bit. The new show should be out soon, but to tide you over I wanted to share a recent episode from the Maccast Member feed on Signatures in Mail. Talk to you soon.

Maccast Members 169 – Plex

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 169. I have been loading more and more content into my iTunes Library using iVI Pro, but tech geeks I know who are really into this home theater stuff all seem to be big fans of Plex. Plex is more open and available on many platforms, built into NAS devices, and even on set top boxes like the Roku and Chromecast. I thought I should at least give it a try, so this episode dives into my experience and thoughts on setting up a Plex Home Media Server.
