Season 2 brings welcome changes
The first season with Paul Hudson and Sean Allen was pretty good. As a fan of Sean’s YouTube content, I found that a large portion of the Season 1 content overlapped with Sean’s YouTube and other podcast content and focused on contemporary news.
Erica Sadun’s presence in Season 2 is a very welcome change. Erica is the top contributor to Swift evolution and brings an unprecedented level of technical expertise to this podcast that can’t be found anywhere else. She’s also an excellent personality that complements Paul with great banter. I’m very excited to see where this podcast goes!
Needs more editing, structure, and regularity
I fell in love with this podcast on Season 1. I'm going through Paul's 100 days of swift ui so i started listening to get more plugged into the community.
For season 2 i was really excited that Erica would be joining since her efforts in swift were mentioned in season 1. Unfortunately it seems like the podcast is now a lot less focused and certainly a lot more sporadic. Season 1 tried to stick around 30 minutes and it gave each episode this sharpening focus. Now its a lot more rambling and off topic discussion.
I love Erica and Paul but for the podcast i recommend setting a time budget of 30 minutes to guarantee only the best makes it in and kicking it back to twice a month.
I don’t like coffee, but I love this podcast!
Finished season one. Super excited about season two. The format is just great—learn something new each episode. I can’t wait to hear from Erica. I learned obj-c and iOS dev with the iOS 4 dev cookbook and related era publications. I can’t wait!!
Hopefully we will hear some of that opinionated swift style!
