Great listen for all developers
I highly recommend you listen to each episode of "Developer on Fire". Dave Rael does a great job of keeping each interview on point and not too long. Each of the guests has a great point or story that I find myself reflecting on from moments in my past, present and what I want my future to be. Really glad I found this podcast and I'm a constant listener now.
