Great Podcast

Love the content! The interviews and rails info is second to none! Would rate 10 stars if Jason would stop saying 'like' all the time! 😂

Awesome podcast

Love listening to Jason and Chris talking back and forth each day. Reminds me of the old days of the bikeshed podcast when Derek and Sean were the hosts. Great look at two normal Rails devs having natural conversation around Rails, Ruby, OSS, and tech in general.

I love the conversations between Jason and Chris. I like how they talk about technical topics in a way that anyone can understand.

I also really enjoyed their guest speakers!
