Alas, friends, we have reached the final episode of 2017. The rate at which this show has grown since we first kicked things off in August still boggles our minds and we can’t thank all of you enough. Seriously, all of you listeners drive us to put out the best show possible every week because we understand that the most precious resource you have is time and we want you to feel that it is well spent.

Ok, onto the show! Our first topic was inspired by a poll that Sharky created on his Instagram stories, where he asked how people felt about their photography pursuits in 2017. The results were surprising enough for us to want to dig deeper in. We then follow that up with the bit of news making the rounds regarding Apple and their intentional throttling of older iPhone speeds. Is it warranted? Do these class action lawsuits filed against Apple have merit? Listen up to find out! Finally, we put a bow on our final episode of the year with a fresh portion of “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?”
