Simply Terrific

This well-produced podcast is hosted by someone who knows what she is talking about. If she's not telling one of her knowledgeable stories it's because she's asking an equally-informed guest for their take. The only element I view as a drawback is their use of the same cartoonish, childish audio embellishments that "Meditative Story" also uses.
Uploading an autism-friendly- no FX adult version of this stellar production would be a relief- and keep these stories audible over other background noise around the listener.

Always making me think

Thanks for changing up my list of product podcasts with something that makes me stop and think harder about what I build and its consequences. A great listen every time.
