The Stack Overflow Podcast

The Stack Overflow podcast is a frank and funny conversation about what it means to work in software and how code is reshaping our world. As it celebrates its 12th anniversary, it’s a must listen for any programmer, as necessary as Stack Overflow itself.

SE Podcast #25 – Mark Russinovich

This week’s guest is Mark Russinovich, from SysInternals.com and now with Microsoft. Chatrooms are chaotic! Jeff mentions that lots of spaces need editorial oversight. A lot of good information is available, but it’s a hard to find it in the disorganizations. It’s a chronic problem. Mark and Joel talk about his command-line work. Mark had…

SE Podcast #22 – Paul Biggar

Joel (but no Jeff) is joined this week by Paul Biggar (who Joel originally met when he was a DevDays London 2009 speaker about scripting languages).  Paul currently works at Mozilla, having come off his own (not that successful) Y Combinator startup. Paul’s least favorite scripting language of all time is PHP. Paul works in…

SE Podcast #20 – John Siracusa

Joining Jeff & Joel this week is John Siracusa, writer for Ars Technica – he’s the one who introduced Macs to the Ars world (and apparently ended up converting their entire staff into Mac users). John didn’t know who Jeff was until the Stack Overflow Podcast started. (Pop quiz: What was the podcast called before…

SE Podcast #19 – John Sheehan

Everyone’s back in their home towns this week (Sorry for the audio quality last week. It was Joel’s fault [actually, it was TechCrunch’s fault]). And joining Jeff & Joel this week is John Sheehan, Developer Evangelist for Twilio. Jeff and Joel are bored of board meetings. How do you make them productive or even useful? Brad…

SE Podcast #18

No guest this week as Joel calls in to the show live from the TechCrunch Disrupt Conference in San Francisco since he’s there launching Trello for Fog Creek Software (also why his audio isn’t quite as good as usual, it’s pretty loud there).  There’s still a full hour of Jeff & Joel goodness though so…

SE Podcast #16

So it’s been a couple weeks since our last podcast, but Jeff & Joel are back and ready to catch up on everything they missed.  There’s no guest this week, just 60+ minutes of that Jeff & Joel banter that (we hope) you’ve grown to love. Jeff and Joel discuss “Zombie Poke,” aka facebook.stackoverflow.com deal…

The SE Podcast Setup

We’ve gotten quite a few questions from people about how we go about recording and producing the Stack Exchange podcast from people interested in everything from the hardware to the software and even the process.  Given the recent revamp of the entire setup (which has been happening during our recent break from live shows), I…
