Wonderful resource for fellow ScrumMasters
Great show, with a good energy. The timing (5 days a week for 10-15 min each) makes it really easy to follow and thus even more enjoyable! Vasco, the host has great moderation skills and really manages to reformulate the guest's ideas in a simple and comprehensible way as well as asking the right questions at the right time!

Valuable resource for every Scrum Master out there
A wide variety of guests answering each day a different set of questions that are very relevant for every Scrum Master. Episodes are 15 minutes or so thus easy to listened e.g. while commuting. I'd rate many episodes even with 5 stars but perhaps the average is 4 stars.

Very useful tips & tricks
Really like the show and would like to say "Thank you!" to Vasco! Not all guests are always experienced enough, but it makes it even listening and gives possibility to remember your own mistakes and compare the solution.
