EYE Chart Radio

This week marks the one-year anniversary of Mike LaPlante taking over the reins from Ken Ray and continuing on the tradition of the EyeChart Radio podcast.

I had the pleasure of celebrating the occasion with The MacCast's, Adam Christianson. We talked about updates to Apple's line of products, Amazon Prime Video on AppleTV, Tim's visit to China and pent up iPhone X demand and what it meant to marketshare.

All that and so much more. Enjoy!
