Can’t wait to hear #stacktrace

My favorite podcast, the best of the best. The synergy between John and Rambo is so 🎯. I love the new technical deep dive section introduced recently and seems to uplift the quality even more.

Fun fact: I always hear it on overcast at 2x speed (sometimes even more) since I can still understand everything they say. Coming here on Apple podcasts to rate it, I clicked on an episode just to hear the 1x speed and it felt too slow. Actually more like 0.75x. Is that how you normally speak my friends? 🤓 Jokes apart, really great podcast. I wish it never stops.

John & Gui power hour

The hosts are great at what they do: in-depth knowledge, great speakers, fun, and relevant. Their experiences complement each other nicely. The quality of the podcast is top-tier. My only complaint is the podcast tends to wander and fill more time than necessary; I wish they would commit to a 1-hour limit. Regardless, this is a great recourse for understanding everything involved with living in Apple’s ecosystem.
