Best Dev Podcast

James and Frank have that perfect best-bud chemistry. Every episode leaves me feeling inspired and eager to learn about all there is in the many rabbit holes of tech and software. Both hosts are super knowledgeable in so many aspects of their work and never fail to keep things interesting. And finally because i want to gush just a little bit, Frank is honestly my hero and pretty much all I aspire to be as a person and developer/electrical engineer. I also can’t help but love that James says “for all intents and purposes” enough that it’s basically his catch phrase.

Fun discussion on mobile development

Fun and educational podcast in a conversational format. James and Frank don’t lecture down to the listener, but talk through issues and compare and contrast approaches on how they solve relevant mobile development issues.

Love the cheesy 80’s intro music!

Great Software Engineering Podcast

This is a great software engineering podcast that I listen to on a regular basis while driving to / from work. Helps me keep up to date on a wide array of topics and enables me to learn more about specific areas of the .NET ecosystem. Looking forward to more great podcasts from Frank and James in the future!
