Awesome podcast for a Behind the Scenes point of view

Made my way over after years of enjoying the Brent Ozar Office Hours podcast/webcast, and was not disappointed. Hearing the origins of some of my Dev Idols is a great motivator and keeps me aspiring to better myself as a DBA. The hosts are laid back and down to earth, which makes everything enjoyable as well. Great job guys!
