My favorite podcast
This show got me through the pandemic. It’s like being at a table with a few of your friends. Great blend of technical talk, interviewing, and being human. I love the chemistry these guys have together!

5 minutes of nothing
Whenever I get this podcast recommendation online I really want to listen to it. The episodes’ titles are appealing and seem interesting. But I can’t get past the ~5 min of ranting about something completely unrelated to the reason I pressed play. It turns me off. Have you ever entered a room where it’s full of strangers talking about something you can’t relate or have no interest on? That’s how I feel whenever I attempt to give it a listen. If they could edit so that it’s part 1) the meat of the convo about the topic, then 2) let’s chit chat. Then I’d be happy to stick around for part 1 and maybe part 2 if I have the time and sounds interesting. It’s like when I listen to Ruby Rogues. It’s a quick intro, let’s get to it then there’s “picks”. Which I usually don’t stick around. It’s unfortunate, but I’ll try to listen again some other time down the road to see if I’m hipped for the initial chatter or something changed to my linking. Because it’s probably working well enough for them to keep this format. Regardless, thanks for making a podcast about Ruby-related topic and helping keeping the community alive and active. I’m sure people love hearing to the entirety of the show.
