Mac Power Users Joins Relay FM

Mac Power Users, one of my favorite podcasts hosted by Katie Floyd and David Sparks, is joining the Relay FM family. Stephen Hackett, writing on the Relay FM blog:

I’ve listened to Apple podcasts for a long time, and with over 250 episodes published, Mac Power Users has been a constant listen of mine for years.

Mac Power Users isn’t just a podcast; it’s an institution. The guest list is impressive, with greats like Rod Roddenberry, Merlin Mann, Aisha Tyler and David Allen making appearances.

That’s why today’s announcement is so exciting: MPU is joining Relay FM.

And from the MPU blog:

Mac Power Users has had a great run on 5by5 and we are grateful to Dan, Haddie and the rest of the 5by5 team for everything they’ve done for our show through the years. But we’ve decided for the show to continue to grow we need to make a few changes.

I have a personal attachment to Mac Power Users. Three years ago, when I was hospitalized for three weeks and couldn’t work (or move), I started catching up on the MPU backlog. Mac Power Users episodes were informative, funny, and always useful. In those three weeks, Katie and David kickstarted my interested in plain text, Markdown, and automation, which eventually led me to use Pythonista, Editorial, and deeply reimagine how I work on a daily basis and the apps I use.

I’m thrilled to see Mac Power Users joining Relay. To make sure you won’t miss new episodes, you can subscribe to an updated feed here.
