This is amazing

You guys are knowledgeable and hilarious. This podcast was recommended somewhere on Reddit, and I just came here thinking discussing software development will be boring. But man, you proved me wrong. After radiolab and reply all, coding blocks is all I listen to on my morning runs and in my spare time.

Great Entertaining Resource

You guys are knowledgeable and funny as ever. Love that you also acknowledge shortcomings. Slack is definitely a must-visit
