Long time listener, friend of the show

Feel like I’ve been listening to this show forever, I don’t regret it though. The title is incredibly apt. If you’ve worked in a web shop / agency you’ll be nodding along almost immediately. Rapid-fire episodes are my favourite, but I do like that their shake up the format for something different.

Barney Parker ,

Best web podcast of the decade

Chris and Dave may occasionally talk absolute rubbish, but when you cover hundreds of topics, endless listener questions and an awesome array of guests, you can't help but come up against subjects to complex to give a simpler answer to!

There guys truely embody the attitude of just getting out and doing it with a level of inspiring positivity!

All nicknames are taken by now ,

Too political at times

Great podcast overall but from time to time it just becomes a political correctness olympics. It’s a shame that it seems to transcend every aspect of our society and people can’t even listen to a tech podcast without being beaten to death with it.
