The Help I Got A Mac podcast was originally launched after I, Cliff Ravenscraft, purchased my very first Apple/Mac computer. I recall my initial excitement about owning a Mac wearing off after about two weeks. I had become quite frustrated with how the Mac OS differed from the Windows OS. I needed help and that’s why I launched this show and titled it, “Help I Got A Mac!” In the Fall of 2007, I met Chris Beiting, a former Apple Store Genius who came to my rescue with a willingness to answer any and all my Mac related questions. I invited him to join me me on a weekly basis and we have now provided more than 100 hours of content devoted to helping the brand new Mac Switcher and discussing all things Apple, including Macs, iPhones, iPods, iPads, and iEverything Else.
