This is the podcast I like the most but have the worst sale pitch for.
If you like hearing two late-middle-aged white guys talk about parenting, life, work, and technology, this is the show for you!

John Siracusa is a logical and straightforward computer programmer. He likes to keep the structure and format of the show in order, but his efforts are similar to a Buddhist monk’s sand art.
Their differences are reconciliable enough to give the show a back and forth while keeping the scope of conversations consistent.

The show has a continuity that rewards long-time listeners, but you will find humor and wisdom that will make it worth your time even from the first listen.
