Fantastic podcast

I’m really enjoying the podcast. The discussion and range of topics is wonderful. Can’t wait to hear and share future episodes within the Ubuntu community. Also, I dig the theme music and rapport!

Fantastic show with great depth

Really enjoy this show. I find Martin to be very logical and very honest in all his responses which is refreshing. The rest of the team is great as well. The show has a great balance of charm and technical depth. The only criticism I have is that the music is a tad bit obnoxious but otherwise highly recommend the show

Sw Shunyo ,

Luv your show

Very informative
