Very nice and comprehensive coverage

The commentary from the experts is what really makes this podcast amazing . Provides good overview to both technical and non-technical audience.

Loved it

I wish there were more! One for all the programming languages out there. Fascinating background info.

Pretty good effort

It manages to give an insight into coding, without alienating non-technical listeners. It does well with the time slots it has, but it falls down here and there by skimming the subjects so lightly that it misses some crucial points. For example, the one about BASIC spends most of its time banging the BBC Micro drum, and merely shoehorns Apple and Microsoft (the biggest players in the market) in the last 38 seconds.
