Mindful lessons for Developers

I really like this podcast Jonathan has the most calming voice I’ve listened to in years and the lessons he delivers are just great. Developer Tea looks at the job and challenges of a coder from so many different thoughtful angles that I feel that every developer will benefit from listening to this podcast.
