Appletinbosnia ,

Excellent!

Lovely podcast with great topics and presenters who present it in such an easy way. Kudos to the theam and the producer!

BenjiijnebP ,

Fine content but a hard listen.

As someone else said, content would be fine if it wasn’t for the endless awkward pauses. You can really hear it’s been recorded on zoom and the conversation is so stilted because of it. Wouldn’t even be a hard job for someone to go edit out all the dead air, but if they can’t be bothered, I can’t be bothered to listen.

Siggmus ,

Great and fully baked

One of the best (if not the best) tech podcasts around!
