An audio spin off of Swift Weekly Brief and discussions on the Swift programming language.
Jesse and JP talk about Swift 5.5, WWDC 21, how the Swift community has evolved in the 7 years of the language, and wrapping up the show. This is our last episode.
Thanks to all our listeners, guests, sponsors and the Spec network for supporting this show over the last 4 years!

smart guys but not very good at explaining things
not a bad podcast if you want a look ahead at the future of the Swift language. be warned that the usual pattern of an episode is like this:
- spend 15 minutes talking about the ramifications of a proposed change in swift
- after going into the weeds, realize they haven’t actually explained what the proposal is
- do a so-so job of describing what the proposal is but again doing it backwards, by going into details before giving an example of what the proposed change to Swift is trying to solve
still worth a listen if you’re a programming language gearhead
