Fantastic Show

Brittany is one of the best podcast hosts. She asks wonderful questions and brings out the best in her guests. Funny, insightful, and enlightening.

Love the in-depth technical convos

I just finished listening to a couple of episodes. I decided to subscribe after consistently listening to the guests who seemed more like “day-to-day” and less celebrity-like rockstar programmers who actually implemented the smaller but still significant solutions they talk about.

I like the technical depth the host asks the questions and give the guests enough time to expand on the details as much as they need without pressuring then to wrap up or give a bite sized response.

I can relate to the guests and been enjoying learning about their different backgrounds and experiences working through certain specific technical challenges. Thanks and keep up the great work!

Host is amazing

I listen to a lot of podcasts and Brittany is hands down my favorite host. Completely different vibe since she took over and I’m here for it.
