A Gem of a Resource

Between John’s great questions (and vast background knowledge) and the insight the guests bring, this is one podcast all Swift devs need to listen to!

To all iOS devs

Definitely do yourself a favor and listen to this. I really learn a lot of things so far. I wish John could squeeze in more time and make this weekly instead of biweekly. Hehe.. thumb up for the amazing work!

Best podcast about iOS and Swift

This is my favorite podcast. I look forward to every episode that comes out and get very exited when I see a new one pop up.

If you are interested in iOS/Swift at all, you should be listening to Swift by Sundell.
