Australian ATP

Its like ATP but with local Australian references.

Excellent

Intelligent and thoughtful from people who know their stuff. All too often being a dev can be a lonely business; this insight into the tools, techniques and experiences of others is invaluable. Audio is well produced and very listenable too.
