Great job at broad coverage

Most software engineers I know have deep pockets of expertise, but not in every area. This podcast does a great job of providing a broad range of topics at an understandable level.

Could be great

It seems like a lot of the glowing reviews were from years ago. The episodes I have listened to so far have been uninteresting. Often the interviewer seems uninterested and asks extremely basic questions. The guest is clearly selling their product or service and it’s a shame.

Most episodes are not useful, with the occasional gem

I have really enjoyed some of the episodes, such as the CAP theorem from a few years ago, but most of the episodes are not useful for an experienced engineer because they stay at the introductory level for the topic. The interviewers often have zero experience with the topic, so their questions are not helpful. It’s common for an interviewer to spend 2/3 of the show stumbling through the background to try to understand what the topic is. This may be useful for brand new developers, but it’s frustrating for experienced developers who really want to learn about a topic from an expert.

Even in the best episodes, the interviewers miss important questions. The show could be 10x better with some new interviewers who ask better questions, and think more critically rather than letting the show be a marketing platform for the guest.
