Good news everyone – we now have an official Podcast!

This podcast is focused around topics of interest for app developers and gamers. In each episode, we’ll interview a well-known developer, have some tech talk and non-tech talk, and fill you in on what’s new on the website.

The hosts for this podcast are team members Tammy Coron, Jake Gundersen, Felipe Laso Marsetti, and Mic Pringle. I will be popping in to give the “what’s new on” section, but really this is their show :]

  • I was literally just looking at the ios podcast store wishing you guys had one! Nice work!
  • So where's the feed so I can add it to downcast?
  • Great. Is there a feed URL so I can subscribe?
  • Here's the feed URL:


    We have also submitted this to iTunes - I'll post the iTunes link as soon as it's approved :]

    Hope you enjoy and let us know what you'd like to see next time!
  • downloading it!
  • Cool, why not in iTunes. It'd be easy to subscribe
  • What about iTunes subscription?
  • Please turn off any chat apps when recording podcasts
  • Very Good, the content is good, but please fix Audio level - and the flow needs to improve as well, but well done for your first podcast and looking forward to the next episode, it is weekly or monthly ?
  • A great start, hope this becomes a weekly thing.

    I'm sure the technical quality will improve as you guys work things out over time. The quality of podcasting has been set rather high over time and I'd love to see you guys reach that bar.
  • It'd be awesome if you include the site's readers into a section of "how the material on RW have helped you become a developer or improve as one".

    You could do a short interview (one per episode) of people submitting apps for the reader's review for example to discuss things like how we did we hear about the site, how do we use it, what's the best we've found, what could be better or expectations for the future.

    This podcast has a lot of potential. I'm already subscribed!

    Good luck guys.
  • The podcast is a great idea, but the first episode crashed and burnt badly. The sound levels are so different, when having perfect volume for the loudest person, its almost impossible to hear the one with the lowest level.

    The sample quality and mics are also varying too much, some are clear, others sound like talking in a tin can, others like under water.

    I listened for three minutes and gave up. Sorry guys, this is just not good enough.
  • I think it would be fun if the interviewee is also part of the roundtable discussions on the other topics.

    Also, did the podcast miss the bit about the controllers? I don't recall hearing it, only that Felipe suddenly referred to "the previous discussion about controllers".
  • A couple additional suggestions:
    - remember your audience and what interests them.
    - encourage your guests to talk openly about their interests, favorite tools, libraries, books and not just limit them to the Ray Wenderlich tutorials or their own stuff. Eg when Mike Daily 71squared was mentioned his book and that it was out of date, I found myself wishing he'd say what books he thought were good now.
    - consolidate / limit the introduction. Frankly i'm a lot more the interested in the topics you'll be discussing than the speakers (unless i know/respect who the speaker is). The intro was really disjoint - with the multiple sets of intro's, I started wondering if it was stuck in a repeating loop.
