Welcome to Macintosh
Apple is one of the most storied technology companies of all time, and that's not just down to its charismatic founder (though the rise and fall and rise of Steve Jobs is obviously a good place to start). Decades of technological development and cultural mythology have ultimately produced today's slick-surfaced behemoth, at whose inventions we stare daily. In this podcast, radio whiz kid Mark Bramhill (we mean that literally - he's in his very early twenties) sketches out some of those stories for us, breathing human mystery and motivation into the most technical of details. He speaks to developers, designers and journalists to report on the first synthesiser built for a Mac, the demise of Macworld magazine, and Jobs' public reaction to Antennagate, among other anecdotes, and these quirky stories are told with great confidence. No new episodes have been released since November 2015, but we're ever optimistic that old favourites will emerge from hiatus. In the meantime, enjoy seven full episodes and four extras available now.
