Customer Reviews

ndng28 ,

Great show

Very inspirational and informative. Keep up the good job!

bjhanifin ,

Host and guest sharing is inspiring!

Listening to the hosts and guests discuss the unique and most useful features of their setups are inspiring. It is exciting to learn about a clever way to use devices in a way that I hadn't considered before.

I appreciate the release notes and especially the breaking changes as a nice overview to listen to before I install an upgrade. I always quickly skim the breaking changes myself before an update to make sure nothing was added since the podcast was recorded.

Great Way to Generate Ideas

I was skeptical going in to this podcast. I mean, what could you possibly talk about that I would be interested in? It turns out, a lot! I have come away with so many new ideas for new automations listening to this podcast. I really love that they’re featuring users that are normal every day people that have gotten into home assistant. It validates that anyone can get into home assistant and all the awesome things you can do with it. Keep up the awesome work guys!
