My kind of podcast
How often do you get to hear a podcast that really fulfils the need for properly detailed coverage of a technical subject you love? This podcast fulfils that for me. Paul and Erica are a good foil for each other. They are both really clever and know their subject, but more than that, they are intelligent and funny too. Well, at least Erica is so enthusiastic and funny, and Paul acts as though he has a humour bypass, but he has to, to keep Erica on track.
Thoroughly enjoyable, informative and entertaining; its not at all like those other ghastly “who’s up” “who’s down” “tech” programmes / podcasts that skate over technical substance. Paul and Erica evidently have great respect for the dedication and massive technical challenges of the engineers and programmers both within Apple and in the Open Source communities evolving Swift in its different applications. However, they don’t pull their punches with their constructive criticism of what’s lacking when that is the case.
Really enjoyable, great content, really great hosts and always look forward to the next episode.
Awesome to have Erica in the show and really enjoy her added expertise.
One issue which I wasn’t sure where else to vent is related to the Swift community and Paul
Really respect Paul for his incredible contributions to Swift. I have learnt loads from him. However, I and a couple of my dev friends feel marginalised whenever he tweets about Brexit. Sometimes it feels like people who disagree with his pro EU attitude shouldn’t be apart of the Swift scene.
When you follow someone for mainly Swift related topics and then get a fair amount of Brexit bashing, it does become pretty tiresome.
