Fantastic Podcast

Really impressed with the variation of guest speakers and topics. Only feedback I'd give is maybe chill on the indie developer front. Feels like every guest is indie lately. Keep it up!

Great Podcast! Keep it up!

I really like this show, it’s interesting and also casual.

I’ve been powering through the episodes on my cycle to/from work — almost sad that I’m up to date now!

Keep up the good work!
