A podcast by a self-described hacker, curmudgeon and hacktivist about the practice and profession of programming drawing on over a decade of professional experience and a lifetime spent hacking, the intersection of politics and society with technology and anything else clever, elegant or funny that catches my mind as a die hard technology geek.

This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast. I talk about the practice of code review, especially when it is challenging. You can directly download the MP3 or Ogg Vorbis audio files.
