Great for WP newbies!

I’m new to WordPress so I’m learning a ton from this show! Highly recommend.

Love the Cooler!

Long time listener to WP Watercooler here. Great show, good people, solid WP related content, and fun too! It's on my WordPress related shortlist.

The innovator for WordPress podcasts

Jason Tucker is the consummate host. He steers the Watercooler without ever drawing attention to himself. The panel is gone many transformations over the years, but I want to give a special shout out to Se Reed, who is by far my favorite character on the show. Russell Aaron and Sarah Wefald also offer a lot to this show. And honestly, I like this show a lot more now that Chris Lema isn’t on there much anymore. The Watercooler is often chaotic, but that's part of it's charm. You will always be entertained, as well as educated. If you're new to WordPress podcasts, this is the one you should start with.
