Because it’s the so-called silly-season in news the show has a bit of an unusual format. The show starts off with the usual followups, a few notable numbers, and then some Apple HR News. The first main story is not a single story, but a medley of medium-sized stories. The second main story is Apple’s censorship of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars publication, and the final main story is the end of Back to My Mac. The show finishes with a quick roundup of some other smaller stories that made the news in August.
You’ll find detailed show notes below the fold, and if you enjoy this free show, please consider clicking on the donate button at the top of the left side bar – the show is free for you to listen to, but not for Bart to Produce!
