If I have time to listen to just one podcast a day or every other day about Apple stuff, which one should I listen to? I know there's a lot of different specialized Apple podcasts out there (i.e. Mac downloads, iOS apps, Apple news, etc.), but can anyone recommend a general podcast which has elements of all of these? I'd also be interested in the best podcasts in certain specialized areas, but mostly I'm looking for one that I can listen to consistently and find out most of what is going on in the Apple world.

    I believe this to be off topic and very subjective, though others may feel differently. Meta discussion.

MacBreak Weekly seems to fit the bill except it's, er, weekly. I don't know of any daily podcasts.

    I had to stop listening to MBW because Leo will not quit talking about iPhones and iPads. They should just change the name to ios weekly. Commented Sep 3, 2010 at 1:00

Mac OS Ken

I really like the podcast Mac OS Ken. From the description on iTunes...

This is daily Apple news. Monday through Friday, Ken Ray brings commute-sized tech news to the podsphere. If it's Apple news, Apple-related news, or news related to Apple-related news, you'll hear about it here. News you'll like... this is Mac OS Ken.

It is free five times per week with a 'Day 6' show available to paid subscribers. The podcast is very well-done, informative and entertaining with a bit of humor.

On iTunes: Mac OS Ken

Web site: Mac OS Ken


Hypercritical from 5by5 is excellent, John Siracua is a great analyst


These aren't released daily, but I also like the MacCast, and MacGeekGab.

I still listen to MacBreak Weekly, but I listen more for Andy Ihnatko than Leo Laporte. Leo is a radio and TV guy who talks for a living. Andy studies technology and is an amazing writer.

EDIT: As a newbie to this forum, I can't post more than one hyperlink yet (Even though I belong to several other StackExchange sites), but the podcasts are all available through iTunes. I'll leave the link to Andy's blog.

I'm not sure about the "daily" but TED talks are very good. They have multiple "streams" for audio, video, and high definition video.

    In what way is that Apple related? Commented Sep 8, 2010 at 0:47
