This is now one of my favourite podcasts, it covers quite a wide range of topics and disciplines but the way they are discussed is very accessible and never overloaded with jargon. I also like the fact that it's not afraid to talk about business, prices etc. - topics that a lot of web podcasts gloss over!
- I find that the volume is quite low, which means that I often have to turn it up to full volume to hear what's being said.
- I think the general chat at the start works well, but perhaps it could be made a bit shorter?
I’m really enjoying A Bit More Backendy. Darren has found his feet since episode one. Well worth listening too.
The thing I like the most about A Bit More Backendy is that it avoids the "earnest silicon valley navel gazing" that sometimes infuses commentary about the tech industry. It’s strength is that the Q&A format and the guest Darren has on the show, results interesting conversations and insights about the parts of the industry that designers and developers deal with every day. Really enjoyable.
