What listeners think

Great content. Great host.
The host is interesting and funny. The guests have been very interesting. The audio quality is pro level. Highly recommended.

Michael Kennedy has a fantastic personality for tech podcasts, I have always found his explanations light-hearted enough to be entertaining, but with enough detail that it's interesting and worth listening to in order to learn. In my experience, that's a rare combination in tech podcasts.

Informative, addictive, and powerful!
I have been following this podcast since awhile now and I have to say that Michael does a great job picking topics which listeners relate to and all the information is very much helpful for a person who is getting their feet wet in Python or an experienced developer. Each and every episode, I learn at least one thing that motivates me to change my day to day life. I am looking for more Python stuff and I would love Michael to continue with the same speed as he is going. Highly recommended for all Pythonistas.
