This was a great episode. Beyond my general fascination with Devine's work, I really liked the sonic flairs you added, I think it adds a lot of personality and a hand-crafted feel to the podcast(reminds me a bit of Radiolab's production!)
That means a lot. Thank you. It's going to take me a while to hone-in on exactly how this show should sound, but it's something I'm going to keep exploring. I'm sure there will be plenty of cases where I get it wrong, but that's the price you have to pay to eventually get it right.
15 minutes in and very impressed. Strongly agree with @Mariano Guerra. The occasional in-place note (I've only hit the first one) gives the podcast a unique feel without being heavy.

Loved the episode. It’s asking a lot but it would be nice if the player can hover over as the page goes down, so that you can read the transcript as you listen/interact with controls
On that note, is the website open-sourced?

The website is open, and I am accepting contributions (though maybe let me know what you plan to do first if you're going to make a change that isn't just like a typo correction or additional link or something): http://github.com/stevekrouse/futureofcoding.orgThe web player sucks and I'd eventually like to switch to a different podcast hosting platform. I recommend grabbing a program like Overcast on your phone (if you have an iPhone), and subscribing to the show there. Even just for listening to on-off episodes, is so much nicer to use a dedicated podcasting app than a web player.

Great episode. I loved the sound pops. I LOLed at one of them. 😆
The 'sidenote' injections were cool too.

I'm sure some folks are not happy about the sound stuff. Glad it's not a universally negative response, at least 😃Still... excited to make more episodes, do more experiments, and hone in on a voice.

Positive response here. It's not over-the-top, just a dash of whimsy. Anyone who with doesn't like can easily ignore and the rest of us can appreciate the zest.

Come here to say thanks. Good production quality and I like the inline notes (such as the one for Inktober). Many questions are thoughtful and inquisitive. The podcast is in good stewardship — looking forward to the next episode on ORCΛ!
