Essential Apple Podcast 78: Chicken Casserole & Social Media with Gazmaz

Recorded 4th March 2018

This week the tech news has mostly been all about the Mobile World Congress, and it wasn’t very exciting to be fair – mostly seemed like a lot of people copying the “notch” they all made so much fun of…

So for a bit of a different feel this week we are joined by the irrepressible and effervescent GazMaz from the MyMac show to take a look at the apparent “disturbance in the force” caused by the “sudden” arrival of Vero, the appearance of, and a couple of other upstarts wanting to take on the might of Twitter, Instagram, Snap and Facebook.

Sorry some of the sound isn’t as good as usual – we had some technical difficulties and went to Discord – but I don’t think all our settings were as good as they could have been.
