Can’t get enough!

I’ve been a listener for the past 4 years, since I began programming. I’ve listened to nearly every episode since then and went back for some of the older stuff. Thanks for putting the many hours of hard work into this fellas!

Great Podcast

The perfect amount of banter, topics, humor, and game shows! They avoid being vitriolic about any of the hot button dev debates, seeming to be well thought and even-keel. The guys seem like genuine friends too.

Happy belated 10th anniversary! Have been a fan of the show for a while now. Enjoying the mix of educational content and silliness.
