When its good its good. When the production quality is not good its unlistenable

This is a great podcast with great guests. However sometimes the production quality is so rough that its really unlistenable. I delete those but its pretty frustrating to get 15 minutes in and realize you have to stop before listening any more.

Great podcast

It's refreshing to find a tech podcast that has quality content, and quality hosts. I subscribe to a few technical podcasts, and they are no where near the quality of this one. Great job guys! I look forward to each new podcast!
