super amiable hosts with a great podcast

Two easygoing indie Apple guys who really know their stuff discussing what they're working on and what's new in the tech world. One of my favorite podcasts to listen to each week.

Great show, great hosts

This is an amazing listen for iOS devs. Great mix of topics, like Apple news, software engineering, and life as an indie dev. Both hosts are knowledgeable, funny, and seem to genuinely enjoy speaking to each other. Give it a shot if your a software dev for any of Apple’s platforms or an indie dev in general.
