IGreat show - informative _and_ inspirational
Been listening to the show on Twitter Spaces when I can, am am _super_ glad the episodes are also distributed this way too.
The show has a nice casual vibe talking with guests I really admire, and has the right mix of biosketch vs. current projects vs. hot takes.
Sometimes it’s even a little goofy, but tbh I’m a little goofy so I think I might have found my people!
Just listened to the Ian McKay episode and Adam saying his wife makes fun of him for his podcast nerdery was, um, _relatable_. Keep doing wha you are doing!
Adam does a great job at making - what could be a boring topic - very interesting.
Adam does an amazing job of having engaging, topical, conversations with people doing innovative things in AWS.
