Making the Web Entertaining

Love this podcast! As the only real web developer at my job, I hearing other web people make jokes and speak about the web in a really funny and cutting edge way. Awesome way to keep on top of the current State of the Union as well as learn about some of the behind the scenes shenanigans of Google DevRel

mrngoitall ,

Jake and Surma are highly underrated!

They tell hilarious anecdotes about what goes on behind the scenes at Google and talk about useful tidbits in modern web development. It’s really entertaining because they have great chemistry together and don’t take themselves too seriously, so I look forward to every new episode. I just wish they had episodes more often!

(Not a paid endorsement by Jake and Surma for their performance reviews.)

Underrated 10/10 Web Dev Podcast

Jake and Surma (miss you Paul) are the cherry on top of a delightfully British JavaScript / web technologies podcast that's as much fun as it is informative.

Also, Jake should have buried the Fox, you heartless man.
