  • "It's like dinner with friends"

    Overall

    While this show prides itself on being a "news" show in a lot of ways, quite often it feels more like having dinner with a group of friends. There's a very conversational feel to the show that makes listening to it really enjoyable. Aside from having many important Mac personalities on to talk about the Mac universe, user input is solicted from the people who participate in show's IRC room - adding a real time flavour to show.
    If there was one caveat, it might be that some folks would find the content (on ocassion) to be too much for younger listeners. But even at it's "worst" the show is always funny, and the reins are always pulled back before it goes completely off the tracks. This is a great listen, and well worth your money.

  • "perfect road companion"

    0 of 1 helpful votes

    If you are a mac enthusiast of any stripe, this program is a great companion for a few hours a week. Uploaded to my iPod, YML goes with me to and from work, or while I mow the lawn, or while I am taking on any other long task that doesn't require attention--instead, I can be entertained and informed by YML. Thanks!

    Not long ago, scientists discovered that the Earth's climate is capable of changing abruptly, as if a switch were flipped, instead of slowly over hundreds or thousands of years. In the past, this type of abrupt change may have caused droughts, floods, and even regional cooling. For example, one archeologist says a long deep drought 4,200 years ago caused the collapse of the Old Kingdom of Egypt.
