New Podcast: Maintainable

Maintainable Software Podcast

I've been doing some behind-the-scenes work on a new podcast about maintainable software, legacy code, and the issues that real engineering teams face every day. It's called Maintainable, and it's hosted by Robby Russell, creator of Oh My Zsh and my teammate at Planet Argon.

There are hundreds (thousands?) of podcasts about tech, so why did we need another one? We're focusing not on what's shiny and new, but instead, are talking with seasoned practitioners that have overcome big challenges to make the most of their existing technology investments. Teams often lean on "the big rewrite" to fix their issues, when really it isn't always the best solution. On Maintainable, we'll have conversations about these decisions and how they affect teams. Here's a little more from the host, Robby, about why we created Maintainable.

I hope you give it a listen, and let me know what you think if you do! And if you know someone who might have an interesting story to tell, send an email to

You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Overcast, or anywhere else you listen to podcasts by searching "Maintainable".
