Learn a lot

Really enjoy Al and his guests. Wide variety of topics and I also love the lightning round. My only suggestion for improvement would be the music. Especially the exit portion. It鈥檚 way too long and loud and Annoying. Otherwise it is a great podcast. Thanks

Really Does Make it Simple -- and Engaging

Al is a pro who knows how to make his guests shine and to make technical topics accessible to everyone across the entire technical spectrum. He covers a wide range of topics and brings out practical insights you can use. I just had the pleasure of being interviewed by him and it was a blast.
