Great resource, great podcast.

I really love listening to this podcast. Nice variety of topics all pertaining to design, code, and personal and professional development. It's nice to just hang out and "talk" with interesting people about some interesting topics.

Nope

No substance here. Other podcasts by thoughtbot are great, though.
