Must listen for Swift developers!

Such a great podcast for anyone at all involved with Swift development. The hosts provide great insights into their programming techniques and talk about updated news in the Swift world. The open ballot answers provide really useful information about how others work on a huge variety of developer topics.

Hello Rocket ,

Really great podcast!

The diversity of ideas on this podcast is fresh. It reminds me of the fun banter in the basecs podcast. Looking forward to hearing the next episode.

Good for newbies

Just learning swift but this has been a great podcast for me to stay in the loop on the latest going on with Swift and just in general in the community.
