The Mac Power Users are Katie Floyd and David Sparks. The purpose of our show is to turn listeners into Power Users. Each episode will look in-depth at one computing or technology related topic or talk to a luminary of the tech community about their workflow.

In addition to her work on the podcast, Katie is a regular speaker at Macworld Expo, a member of the influential Mac Roundtable Podcast featuring a panel of Mac luminaries and frequent speaker and consultant on all things Apple and technology related. Katie is also a contributor forMacworld and the ScreencastsOnline Monthly Magazine. Katie serves as the President of her local Macintosh Users Group. As her time allows, Katie is available for consulting projects and speaking engagements.

The Mac Power Users has a large audience of Mac enthusiasts and productivity junkies. Because the show focuses on substance, the content remains fresh much longer than typical “news and rumor” tech shows. If you are interested in sponsoring the show, contact us.
