Correction from Michael Chan (11/30)
This episode has been edited from its original release on November 26th.
In the original version, I made insensitive comments about someone I deeply respect.
It was far too casual a comment for this show and steeped in envy.
I've reached out to those that my biases most directly harmed.
With their guidance and permission — we have edited both the audio and description of this episode for the benefit of future listeners.
I am ashamed that my words caused harm to friends, colleges, and listeners of this show.
I am committed to learning from this mistake and continuing to work toward the welcoming show listeners and guests deserve.

Awesome Content & Conversations
I’ve listened to this podcast, and some episodes multiple times, and it is such good content but not over my head. Being < 1yr into being a software development I love hearing what all the guest are doing in the React ecosystem.
Chantastic asks great questions and really helps to understand the need for what the guests are sharing.
Also, I have found myself grooving to the intro/outro music on more occasions than you would believe.
The Best React Podcast
This is the best possible place to get react news. The host is always very engaging and informative. I learn new things every time I listen to it. I love chantastic’s discord community too! They are very welcoming and super supportive community. Also you gotta sign up to his newsletter if you wanna have a better understanding of react.
An Amazing React Podcast
Michael consistently has engaging conversations with the best and most interesting people from around the React world. Well worth any React developer’s time.
