  • No thanks

    Used to be a weekly listener who recently started again and just can’t do it anymore. Jason is great and knowledgeable but Myke comes off whiny and lives in such a small online bubble it is infuriating to listen to.

  • Long time listener

    I have been a long time listener but over the last few months I have fallen out of love with this show. It gives old man screaming at cloud vibes. A lot of negativity especially from Jason and his long winded self-absorbed stories have started to bore me.

    Macbreak weekly has become an unlistenable mess with Leo constantly being dismissive of technologies, interrupting other hosts and guests, the “subscribe to TWiT” segment getting longer and longer, a lack of focus on the tech itself and more on politics are all things driving me away from that show and the TWiT network in general. more
