Great podcast

As a Django dev, I value this show. It has clear, clean explanations of how to work with various aspects of Django.

I regularly hear things that make me rethink a pattern or confirm a suspicion on how to do something in a reasonable or better way.

Thanks to the author for their hard work on this podcast.

I can’t believe this is free

There are no audiobooks on Django on Amazon, but this podcast is basically exactly that. It’s great because it’s actually about the technology. Super helpful for me as a beginner.

Beginner Friendly and Thorough Explanations

As a learner who had zero experience in both web dev and Django, I find it very helpful! I like it how I can use this resource while doing some house chores. Thank you!!
