Recently I received a hand-written note, a t-shirt, and some stickers from Mark Bramhill, host of Welcome to Macintosh. Described as “a tiny show about a big fruit company“, Welcome to Macintosh has covered the history of Macworld Magazine, the use of skeuomorphs in Apple software, the Apple rumor mill, and more. If you’re a fan of Apple and you don’t subscribe to the podcast, stop reading this and add it to your podcatcher right now →.
Getting back to that note, t-shirt, and stickers: They were a thank you for backing Welcome to Macintosh: Season 3 on Kickstarter. When I pledged my support, I knew I would be getting the t-shirt, but the note and stickers were a very cool bonus, a perfect example of what I love about a good podcast.
By their nature, podcasts have such a great “indie” feel. Whenever I listen to an episode, it’s not hard for me to imagine the final steps of the host (or perhaps staff) as someone uploads the MP3 and publishes it for distribution. Then it’s “magically” whisked to eager ears everywhere.
In the case of Welcome to Macintosh, you can tell the show is a labor of love for Bramhill. Each episode is well-researched, diligently produced, and masterfully edited. The show is at the top of my favorites, and I can’t wait for Season 3, coming this Summer.

Alright, if you’re a regular reader, my guess is you know all about the latest iPhone 7 Apple introduced yesterday. That’s not the point of this post. Rather I want to introduce you to self-made tech reporter Marques Brownlee. I love this kid’s hustle.
As you can tell from the video included with this post, Marques is talented. He’s got the gear for shooting great footage, and he knows how to edit. He has used his YouTube channel to garner over 3.6 million followers. That among other things got him press access to yesterday’s Apple event. If you want to check out more of his stuff, check out his YouTube channel or follow him on Twitter.
