Customer Reviews

For iOS & Cocoa programmers!

I’ve gone back and listened to ever single episode. The format of this podcast is Saul interviewing various people in the Apple programming community, and the most important thing is they talk about programming and aren’t afraid to get technical. It’s nice that some of the people interviewer are people I’ve met, and even live in my home city.

I really love it when they talk about the history of programming, on the Mac or in general, and how our current design patterns came about. There’s a couple awesome episodes with older guys who were there in the early days with some great stories you won’t hear anywhere else.

Saul gets right to the interesting stuff, and there isn’t time wasted in light conversation or stuff that I’m not really interested in. While I’m always entertained, the reason I listen is to get better at programming & running my own projects.

Great Interviews

Saul Mora is a sympathetic host who takes a definite interest in his interview subjects. The show isn’t afraid to get into technical details and go in-depth. Interviews are long in length, which is nice, because unlike some other shows the long format allows for full coverage of a subject.

Stereo audio

Listened for years and it has some good content. However, I have a lot of issues with the faux "panel" stereo audio. Having different speakers on right and left audio channels makes it extremely hard to follow the conversation. First, you are only getting half the volume at once, so you have to turn it up in louder environments (e.g. Mowing the lawn). Second, not everyone has well balanced hearing. I have loss in my right ear and audio on just the right channel is harder to hear. Finally, stereo audio doubles the bandwidth compared to mono, so downloads are 2x the size and Saul is paying for 2x the bandwidth he could be. I know there is a mono option in settings, but I don't want to set it system-wide.

Please consider mono audio (or at least a mono version). Thanks.
