    Disorganized, scatter-brained, and not worth your time
    The podcast used to be great when it was only a couple of people speaking. Now, there’s 4 people. And they are always talking over each other, having simultaneous side conversations, and interrupting flows of thought by finishing it for others or by making jokes. Sometimes I can’t even understand what anyone is saying because everyone is talking at once. Also the trivia questions have gone waaay downhill. One of the trivia questions was to guess the prices of TVs at Best Buy and another was to guess a year of a product release that no one has heard of. They should do actual trivia questions instead of random guessing games and bending the rules in some episodes (giving hints, awarding half points, etc.) The quality overall has also been decreasing. Sometimes they forget to do trivia questions during an ad break like “oh! I forgot — trivia time”. It’s been a staple of the podcast for years but they still forget. They are constantly making bets and then subsequently discussing the rules/terms for a portion of the podcast (usually in the beginning) which delays the actual content. I know this sounds like the podcast isn’t for me anymore and you’re right, it isn’t anymore. But it genuinely was an enjoyable listen with less people in the past. Too many cooks will spoil the broth and this podcast is definitely spoiled. 1/5

    Best Podcast Ever
    I love this podcast. I listen to it as soon as a new episode comes out, and it’s just perfect in every way. They get off topic the perfect amount of the time and stay on topic while not letting it be boring at all. All the people in make it more fun in their own way and it’s just the best.

    Awesome roundtable tech chats
    Waveform is my go-to tech podcast. I love the format and the chemistry the team has.
  • JoeySommers
    It’s alright
    Not as to the point on their topics as they could be.
  • gurney Jen out fm
    Good, used to be great
    The recent episode without David was great. I realized he makes the episodes too scatter brained. Lots of whining honestly. Used to love the pod, but I feel like they are forgetting it started as a podcast, not a video.
    Apple quality at an “open source” price (free)
    One of the best podcasts around.

    great show … for video watchers
    audio listeners get screwed so often
  • eMac001
    Basically the only podcast I listen to
    This is the best tech podcast. All 3 hosts are amazing and the topics usually revolve around electric vehicles, tech news/rumors, etc
  • jonathanwylie
    Used to be amazing, now just good
    When this podcast started, it was an audio only experience. Now, I get it. He is a YouTuber. Video is their thing. But when they added the video version it became video first. It is not great for audio listeners. They often have to describe visual things for audio listeners and it is getting a little tiresome. I love the YouTube channel, the hot takes, and the knowledge and experience they all have, but if I wanted to watch a video podcast I would do it on YouTube. As an audio podcast, it has unfortunately strayed too far from its roots.

    All about technology— very entertaining!
    I love this podcast, it’s 100% about people who love technology and love talking about it. They usually avoid political and controversial subjects, which I think makes them different than the rest of the podcast world. This is good because you can just shill and listen 🙂🙂
  • Hewson🤠
    Best Podcast. Love to trivia!!
    Although sometimes it is hard as a audio listener, I live this podcast. It is entertaining, fun, and easy to follow. If you love MKBHD like I do, you will LOVE this pod. If there is a MKBHD employee reading this, I appreciate all that you do and keep up the incredible content!!!
  • PoppieAcorn
    really conversational + down to earth + good, current topics. david was an amazing addition to the dynamic as well, love his extra perspective. cool to hear adam & ellis chime in occasionally too. thank you for making tech + tech news accessible and also entertaining at the same time. also we need mac on as a guest :)

    Great Show with Two Minor Complaints
    Overall, this show is great. It’s engaging, funny, and entertaining. There are two things that bug me though. First of all, I know there is a video version, but I listen to it as a podcast. And while there’s nothing wrong with the video, sometimes I feel like I’m missing something because I’m not watching. You guys talk about something “on screen” that I can’t see and instead just feel confused and left out. At the very least, explaining it to the viewers would be amazing. The second thing is that I’m not as smart as you guys. There are times when I’m completely lost when your talking about the Snapdragon 379363 chip or whatever. Sometimes you ask each other “do you know about this?” Then everyone answers yes, and you just talk about it. Educating the listener would be nice, it would make it a bit easier to follow along with. Just assume that we don’t know about it. But I do strongly recommend this podcast. But those tiny tweaks would make this an easy 5 star review. Thanks!

    Great podcast
    This podcast is really informative and fun to listen to so I would definitely recommend it if you are interested in tech.
  • MichaelAnthonyButler
    David is so annoying. Wish he could go back to guest appearances.
  • G's he's he's he'd had
    Best podcast i ever listened to

    Great Podcast
    This is a very interesting podcast and it always makes me joyful listening to it. Every Friday I am waiting for it to come out.

    Love this podcast
    Everything mkbhd and the studio does is five stars

    Adding David was a GOOD move
    [Updated Review] Happy they added David as a 3rd guest, he brings a lot more energy and spark to the Marques and Andrew dynamic that felt a little stale in the beginning. Also having the 2 producers (?) chime in every once in a while is great. Way better chemistry all around. Much more interesting and fun to listen to. Perfect at 1.5x speed. The video podcast is so great it’s difficult to listen knowing I’m missing that. [Original Review] Really needs a third guest, or someone with just more energy. Both hosts are very stable speakers that are that missing diametric chemistry of a sensible host + a more aggressive host (ie. Dieter vs Nilay on the Vergecast, Linus vs Luke on WAN Show). Just feels boring, they’re reading the news and giving generic opinions. Production on the accompanying videos is great. I just find Vergecast to give profoundly better insights into tech, but to be fair MKBHD in general gives more vanilla opinions for the masses while on Quinn (SnazzyLabs) & Dave (Dave2D) are more nuanced. Podcasts should be the front for unique behind the scenes insights, not generic news, save that for videos.

    Four stars
    Two thumbs up

    Fresh insights in tech
    From all the tech podcasts I listen to, this podcast I literally listen from start to end.. worth every minute. MKBHD is just miles away from others in the same field.

    Honest review
    I was inspired by the most recent podcast (1.20.2023) to leave an honest review. While it’s perfect I still believe there’s room for improvement, especially David laughing when nothing is funny! Keep up the good work.
  • rich aesthetic
    Apple disdain
    Even when a company does a good thing for the consumer, they go out of their way to let you know the company is doing it for a reason. As if we don’t know. Of freaking course they are doing it for some other reason. Be happy. Whatever the reason is, it benefits us to have a standard wireless format that aligns…

    Amazing entertaining and informative podcasts!!

    7-Keys to the internet was fantastic!
    This most recent 7-keys to the internet was a fantastic podcast. Incredibly well produced and researched, and very captivating and informative. It even reminded me of the style of a Radiolab podcast! Good job all. I look forward to hearing more semi-journalistic podcasts like these form you all!
  • ReaPetra
    Loved the DNS episode!

    Great Long Form Podcasts too!
    David’s explanations are really great. I enjoy this podcast in every format.
  • Joe-la-patate
    Inviting none tech people?
    I love the show since it’s begging, but this Hasan Minhaj episode was special: talking tech with people that aren’t fans of tech. It gives you perspective on things, it allows Marques and Andrew to develop and articulate their points of view… I would see this kind of episodes again as special editions episodes. 👍🏻
  • akhrika
    One of the best
    I have watched marques since 2017 and I love his podcast
  • Jonathan Knolls
    Perfect for any tech nerd
    I happen to fall into the category of tech nerd I watch all of the release events for all of the major tech companies like apple,Samsung, and google as well as any others I might find interesting. This podcast is a great way to keep up with all things tech and is amazing for anyone who loves tech!!
  • personyash2201
    This podcast is very well made and I like how it is clean, which I appreciate. Also some stuff for Marquess is that I was born 10 years after Ja Morant to the day and also I have an IPhone 7 that goes down 70% in 1.5 hours. 😭
  • augnosmusic
    Initial thoughts
    Found the podcast through the Waveform clips on YouTube, and I’m stoked to find out the videos were just pieces of the bigger podcast. Excited to keep listening! Just one thing to nitpick at, and this is coming from another podcast editor, is that Marques’ microphone sounds distinctly worse than the other hosts, specifically episode 141. The clicks and crackling is quite noticeable while commuting with the volume way up than watching the videos at home. Otherwise, great podcast and will continue to listen!

    It's a good tech podcast overall, but the trivia section is such a waste of time.

    Top 5 tech podcast out there
    I watch & listen to a lot of tech YouTubers and podcasts and MBKHD is referenced a lot so I started watching & checking out his stuff and very much enjoy it I don’t watch everyone but I do check out a lot of his Apple related ones and enjoy his stuff on some of the Samsung devices too he just has very good & interesting content. I just started listening to & watching his waveform podcast great show definitely worth watching & listening to 😎🤙🏻

    Amazing Tech Podcast
    This is a great weekly podcast for all those tech enthusiasts out there. I enjoy listening to this every Friday and frequently relisten to this podcast throughout the week.
  • Ken Uy
    Andrew frequently interrupts Marques
    I like the YouTube channel and enjoy this podcast well enough but what makes it hard to listen to is Andrew. He FREQUENTLY interrupts Marques as well as talks over him. He also will make loud verbal sounds to agree, disagree, interject, etc., which is very distracting. On the other hand, Marques is calm and respectful. Andrew’s behavior doesn’t exactly reach the point of rudeness, but his behavior is very distracting for a podcast. This in turn adversely affects my experience. As a result, I give this otherwise great podcast a 3/5.
  • kermit da doggo
    Great podcast!
    This is my favorite podcast to listen to, I literally get excited for every Friday so I can listen to a new episode, I always just have a great time listening to it!
  • Reptar.
    So boring
    There’s little to any excitement in anything they talk about.
  • Swaggy bruh bruh123
    Cool show
    I appreciate how this podcast isn’t riddled with ads every 15 minutes like most hour long podcasts. I understands ads are how you guys make money so I appreciate the sacrifice to make the show more enjoyable
