Very good podcast😌

Brian and Benedict are very kind and I love the new edition of Benedicte. The honest peek into their lives has helped me get more ideas and be more satisfied with my work because I’m a software developer too. I like to listen to Slow and Steady in the morning because it’s very funny 😁 in the beginning and it makes me happy and is a start to a good day. Then I listen to the rest because it’s more serious (but still the perfect amount of friendly and funny😝) and helps me with my work.

I highly recommend this podcast!
