Cruxto ,

Great Apple Podcast

I really enjoy listening to this podcast, especially when the host interviews software companies like serif and skylum which were really good insights on what motivates the companies.

Also the podcast has great giveaways.

Definitely worth a listen, great British podcast 👍🏻

GeeksCornerUk ,

Great podcast

I discovered this podcast after the host was a guest on another podcast I listen to, i subscribed and several episodes later I’m hooked.

Lots of good content here

Mackyasse ,

Still going, still growing, getting better but not losing its charm

I have listened to this show for a long time - well basically since the start... It was always full of enthusiasm and decent chatter, and now it has matured into a somewhat more coherent form and overall you can tell the guys have been learning as they go. Over the last 15-18 months I feel this show has really started to get a bit slicker with better sound and some really quite high profile guests. Still feels like some guys doing it for the "craic" but that's part of its charm I think.
