I haven't deleted it....yet

John seems to have great insights and has found a great niche. However, the theme song and advertisements are so annoying that I have to skip over them. I am an avid podcast listener and this is the only one I can't handle. If it comes on at a time I can't forward ahead, I turn it off. It's that bad. Also, I am not sure why he is using the F word so much. Other than that it is a pretty clean podcast and could be great for high school students. He has a lot of insights and is very motivating. I am not sure I agree 100% with his Quantity over Quality philosophy, but I can see that a focus on Quality over Quantity could be a common pitfall for programmers.

Please find a better podcast newbies/women

I found this guy when I was new to the industry. I felt like he was a "brogrammer" even back then, but I gave him a shot. I listened for a few months and watched the YouTube videos and realized....he's not talking to me. A woman. What a waste of my time. I felt so belittled by half his content. The questions that came in all seemed to be guys who haven't been in a relationship with another human irl besides their family. Anyway, waste of time and he's always selling something. There are better podcasts, vlogs, and books out there everyone.

Ramble on

Nothing but rambling and repeating the same non-useful information. This podcast is nothing but a marketing tool to get you to buy (or watch while being forced to watch commercials) his other content. I’ve already decided if anything useful was to be available in the other content, I would find it elsewhere without the ramble. This guy needs to go back to his day job. If you like it, check out other podcasts and programming content. You will find your time much better spent. Garbage.
