emmerselizabeth ,

love the pod

Great smarts guests and the hosts are pretty cool too 🤠

perfect_squircle ,

DHH? Gross.

Pretty bummed y’all had DHH on the show. Dude has done so much harm through racist policies at Basecamp and a general sneering attitude to anybody who doesn’t look/act like a white dude. Pass.

GreatNancy ,

SO GOOD

Can’t get enough of this one! Learned so much about WASM and the future of the web
