Kollege student ,

Great Podcast!

Started listening after hearing about them on Techmeme Ride Home. This podcast is well done, the hosts seem knowledgeable and are interesting to listen too.

If you’re a dev (or adjacent) and interested in topics related to MS technologies (Vs code, C#, etc), this seems to be a great podcast.

I’m leaving a positive review because it’s definitely a 5 star podcast and I like to support good content. The only reason I don’t subscribe to this podcast is that I just don’t happen to be overly interested in most of those topics they cover and I already have a backlog of other podcasts that cover topics I’m more interested in. I’ll definitely tune in occasionally depending on the topic.

Great software development podcast

Very Knowledgeable hosts. If you’re a software developer you’ll learn a lot listening to this podcast.

Informative and Fun

I’ve been listening since the early days and the guys consistently provide great shows. The sound quality is fantastic (which is not something all tech podcasts can say) and they feel like old friends at this point! Keep up the great work.
