MacVoices #22171: The Mac Show on The British Tech Network – The (not Apple) tech gear we can’t live without!

A “sister” show to MacVoices is The Mac Show on The British Tech Network. Many, but not all, of the same faces, and different perspectives on some topics. This is a sample show recorded earlier this month that I wanted to give you a taste of another terrific Apple-oriented podcast. The panel delivers on of the “Summer of Fun” shows covering some of our favorite non-Apple gear that we can’t live without…or at least wouldn’t want to live without.
