Love the show!
It's great hearing you talk about stuff I've recently seen mentioned on Twitter or Reddit. Also all the other things I've missed!
Like a coffee Talk How for the Python Community
I met one of the hosts at a podcasting conference and gave this show a try. I was impressed by Michael and Brian's deep knowledge, friendly manner, and easy style. The program reminds me of one of those coffee talk shows on a small town AM radio station where you can find out everything that's going on in a community.
