Customer Reviews

gmaass ,

Always good for a listen

One of the few IOS/Swift podcasts that I always make a point of listening to.

Dejus ,

Excellent podcast

I started listening to this podcast a few months ago, starting from the first episode. I haven't caught up with the latest ones yet, but have been enjoying each episode. Only a few months back now. (I particularly enjoy Aaron's snark, but gather he leaves at some point?)

JeremiahJ ,

One of the Good Ones

I have been listening to this podcast for some time and I really enjoy it. The hosts are honest and hold nothing back when it comes to their opinions. A the name suggests, they talk about more then just code but in a good way. It is highly entertaining and interesting. Even the guests hosts are good. What are you waiting for, download the podcast.
