  • "An awesome all-around show!"

    Overall

    I have been listening to Shawn King and the various permutations of his show since his humble beginnings recording the show in his apartment in Vancouver, British Columbia. Over the years the show has gone through many changes - changes in structure, co-hosts, location, and now in how the show is distributed. Shawn consistently gets interesting and informative guests that cover a phenomenal range of interests and activities. He leaves no stone unturned in his quest for the best guests, and the most accurate news in the Mac Community, and a truly entertaining delivery. He is a consummate "every-man" who doesn't come across as a stuffed shirted windbag or Techno-know-it-all, and always does his best to talk *with* his audience and not *down to* them. I love how he opens the mic to anybody who wants to call in - from anywhere in the world no less - and offers them a soapbox to ask questions, proffer assistance, clarify the muddy, and even just say "hi". Shawn is a genuinely, and supremely nice guy who's only purpose is to deliver the finest, most accurate and entertaining Macintosh news, discussion, and entertainment available on the Internet today - a mission he succeeds at in SPADES, every WEEK! Additionally, I like the online chats that accompany the live show, and the email discussion list and web-based forums on the show's site. The community that surrounds the show is outstanding and engaging, and the first place I go when I have questions regarding my Mac. No matter the realm or the expertise, there is somebody there who can either answer your question, or find someone who can. Even on totally non-Macintosh related topics!! The wealth of experience, friendliness, and honest sense of community is one of the show's greatest assets, and I think Shawn's no-nonsense, even-keeled attitude makes the show such a pleasure to listen to. It?s one of the few things I look forward to every week. Keep up the great work Shawn, Jay, Wally, Sly, & Company!

    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.
