Insightful, Educational, and Interesting
Dan has done an excellent job not only getting successful and interesting people on the show, but interviewing them and eliciting interesting conversations about design, development, business, and entrepreneurship. If you are interested in business and the trials and tribulations that happen behind the scenes, this is a great podcast to listen to.
I've tried for some time to get into the habit of listening to Podcasts, but I had a hard time finding anything that really made me excited to listen regularly. The Pipeline has changed that and has me looking forward to the next episode every week.
So far, so great!
As someone who's parent's could not afford an internet connected computer during the mid 90's it is great to hear Dan interview web pioneers. It's a great history lesson and really makes you appreciate those who came before. Dan does a great job interviewing the geek greats.
45 minutes of bliss.
The Pipeline is a podcast you simply must listen to.
Originally, I began listening to The Pipeline to keep my ears busy at work. A few of my co-workers overheard part of the podcast and immediately had me turn it up. A few minutes later and the whole office listened to the entire episode and, when The Pipeline ended, we all agreed that we had to listen to more great podcasts from 5by5 (the "company" responsible for The Pipeline).
We ended up listening to another podcast and enjoyed it so much that the entire office is excitedly anticipating upcoming episodes!
