Great podcast

I were to travel home from Switzerland, and became tired of music. Then my sister suggested that I found a podcast about one of my interests. Ever since I have been listening to coding blocks on my way to school, on my way home from school, when driving elsewhere or making homework or programming. I have learned so much, and I am really thankful for the great podcast, and I would recommend it to everyone who is programming or is learning to program. The podcast isn’t specified to one language so all programmers can listen to it. I have already learned new things about Java, JavaScript and C#!
