After a four month hiatus, the Macworld Pundit Showdown returns to hijack your regularly scheduled podcast. We’ve got four months of Apple product releases, iPhone 4 antenna brouhahas, and assorted rumors to pontificate on and only 45 minutes in which to do it.

An impressive array of panelists looks to show off their punditry prowess in this installment. Senior editor Roman Loyola, associate editor Chris Holt, and Infoworld newsletter editor (and ex-Macworld staffer) Lisa Schmeiser battle it out to see whose insights are the sharpest and whose intellect is the keenest.

Show Notes

In case you’re flummoxed by this out-of-the-ordinary format, it’s a loving recreation of the BBC Radio program Fighting Talk, which is also available in podcast form. We explain in greater detail in an earlier podcast.

Of course, the iPhone 4 and Apple’s press conference earlier this summer get their share of question, but we also find time to trade barbs and opinions on the Apple TV, the recent spate of Mac hardware updates, and the comings and goings of Apple executives.
