Entertaining; Only somewhat software related

I wouldn’t quite call this a “must listen for any programmer”. It has plenty of high level not quite development applies to anywhere content so non developers are probably welcome.

Outside of that it is quite enjoyable and works as something you do not need to give 100% of you mental capacity to.

Good change. I like minimal music intro as well but this one isn’t too long.

Overall a great podcast.
