Normally the Macworld Podcast is a sober, carefully constructed affair. But our sober, carefully constructed host, Chris Breen, is on vacation. And when the cat’s away, the mice will make a game-show podcast that’s full of sound effects. That’s right. It’s time for a third edition of Macworld’s Mac Pundit Showdown, our blatant rip-o… er… homage to the excellent BBC radio program Fighting Talk. In this edition, Dan Frakes, Roman Loyola, and Chris Holt match wits as they field questions from their cruel quizmaster, Philip Michaels.
If you’re wondering exactly what’s going on here, we explain it all in the show notes to our original Macworld Fighting Talk podcast. Fearing wrath of BBC lawyers, we soldiered on when we did our second installment, re-dubbed Mac Pundit Showdown. Macworld Editorial Director Jason Snell won both contests, proving that it’s good to be the boss.
