Reviews

TCP over carrier pidgin

★★★★☆ in Apple Podcasts by Welsh1lad from United Kingdom on February 28, 2020 

 

The show continues to improve , even more so since the host has joined red hat and we are now getting more hosts on the show than before. Sysadmin is a good place to listen to real world news and issues that are brought up in the news slot. The two hosts bounce off each other pretty well and seem very clued up on the subjects that they bring up. It’s a good show. Keep up good work
