Nice variety of topics
I enjoy hearing the experiences and opinions of the hosts. The show is focused on web development, but there is a nice variety of other topics mixed in as well. Keep up the great work!
Great for commutes
You can ride a train to work and easily listen to this podcast. Often makes me smile more around strangers. Which is great because smiles are contagious and have correlated physiological benefits. Also, great place to learn about new tools & packages for Laravel & Vue and the other stuff.
One of the best
Michael and Jacob are fantastic hosts who are both able to balance technical concepts while still being approachable to beginners. They are incredibly talented, very humble, and a joy to listen to. I look forward to every new episode, and appreciate all they do for the dev community.
