It's for software engineers, mostly

The conversations between Dan and Marco are like those that I have with fellow software engineers. Sometimes it's technical, sometimes it's design motivations. Sometimes it's even coffee related.

The podcast for developers.

And coffee drinking new fathers.

Glad it's over

Dan Benjamin is an awful host. He usually just takes the podcast on some assinine tangent. Glad the show is over!
