Podcast transcript

No empty / long talk, fillers. Spot on.

Q: Any way possible to get transcript of your podcasts? This way can read it during camping/offline environments?

Great, but oversimplified discussion

I’m a huge fan of Mayuko’s content; she’s humble and avoids giving opinionated advice. I see this podcast as a way for Mayuko to discuss the polarizing topics in the industry without introducing the bias of her own experiences. Just like her videos, the content is very well-produced, streamlined, and fits in that perfect 30-minute length.

My concern with the format is the strict choice to discuss only 2 competing options; I believe this does some injustice to the “left out” options. For example, I’m a big proponent of community college as a method for progressing towards a top-tier education while dramatically reducing the cost. The podcast also left out Angular in the discussion of major web UI frameworks, and Microsoft Azure (#2 in the cloud market) was omitted from the episode on cloud platforms. I understand that considering all options would increase the comparison permutations, but I think extending the podcast to consider all major options would be worthwhile.

I also think the rapid-fire, uncredited, mixed-quality opinions in the introduction is often disorienting and doesn’t add much to the discussion. I agree that it’s important to understand the spectrum of opinions on controversial topics, but I don’t think the interlude adds enough value to an otherwise rock-solid podcast.

I’ll probably listen to every episode, but I hope the format becomes more flexible to avoid omitting objectively major options. Maybe change the name to `switch/case` podcast? :)

This is Awesome I love it

I got hooked of the first episode, I like that you are bringing out hidden components related to the industry. It’s not all roses and gold the devil is in the details.
