Steady web greatness
I think I started listening to these guys in 2013ish (has it really been that long??) and still love the show. Dave and Chris are such a down-to-earth, knowledgeable resource for all things web, so I’ve been able to stay up on trends over the years and chuckle at their jokes. If you’re into web stuff at all, I highly recommend this show. Keep up the good work, fellas!
I love this podcast.
I have listened to this podcast consistently for many years now. It’s so great. Chris and Dave are so smart, so thoughtful, and a true delight to listen to. Being so well respected among their peers they are able to land giants of the web industry as guests on their program but even when they have no guest on they continue to shine. I recommend this podcast to any front end developer or web ux/design professional I know.
