Great Coding Fodder!

Sitting behind a desk all day writing code? You google the Stack, you might as well listen to it. Also I’d really like the share my worst bug! Can we do call ins? 😂 it involves triggers and VbScript!

This podcast is easy to listen to and get my work done. Very easy listening. They talk about stuff that’s highly valid in my life. Check it out! Coding Podcast quantum supremacy!

Heavy on the woke politics. Light on interesting tech.

Unprofessional upward inflections in every speaker’s voice.

This podcast was far better with Spolsky as the host.
