I’m not even a C++ dev and I love the show

Jason and Rob’s relationship on the show is genuine. They’re industry vets and humble enough to admit when they don’t know much about a topic. The shows ads are never too long and the content is always amazing. Keep up the great work!!

Guest audio is too poor

I have been trying to listen to the show for a year and a half and I just can’t hear it. Every time they have a guest on the show the audio is just too poor. You can only hear the guest under perfect background conditions but I only listen to podcasts while driving, doing dishes, taking a shower, or working out.

I really think they need to consider upgrading their conferencing software or give their guests a checklist of how to maximize their audio. Since it happens every time I think it’s their conferencing software.

Great podcast

It's refreshing to find a tech podcast that has quality content, and quality hosts. I subscribe to a few technical podcasts, and they are no where near the quality of this one. Great job guys! I look forward to each new podcast!
