Has something for everyone

Very good listening for all levels.
James is using very real world experience that he’s bringing to the table for others to learn from. A good mix of his own thoughts on common issues for both new and experienced developers in which he articulates well and interviewing a mix of people in and around the Dev community. I’m hopeful that this podcast is going to go from strength to strength in the foreseeable future.

Brilliant Podcast

The Cynical Developer is fast becoming one of my favourite podcasts. For a new developer like myself James’ direct questioning and focus upon why a developer should care about the technology being discussed in the interview episodes is really beneficial. The insight episodes provide a useful understanding into the mind of a senior dev.

A strong newcomer

This podcast starts out strong. It is only new, but I am sure will be around for the long haul. James is a great interviewer, who asks questions of the guests to get different answers than what you hear on other podcasts. Definitely worth listening to and subscribing to.
