    Gotta say this was defiantly worth pausing the workload and taking 45 minutes to give it a listen… We have been working in the web design / programming industry for 7 years, many of those years learning these lessons the hard way. Your podcasts will defiantly be required listening for the team…

    • Gene Crawford

      Thanks Gabriel! Really appreciate that!

  • Jason VanLue

    What’s the intro song you guys use?

    • Gene Crawford

      Just something we snagged from AudioJungle, at this point I can’t recall what it was i’ve had it stored here on the old Hard Drive for a good year and the file name got changed. Bleh…

    Loved this initial episode! I met Carl at FrontEnd and knew he was cool, but I didn’t have any idea how much wisdom is stored up inside his brain. Super valuable for people serving clients.

    • Gene Crawford

      Carl is indeed the man!

  • Marcia L. King

    Invaluable information; thank you so much for sharing!

  • Michael

    Terrific inaugural episode. My only suggestion would be to use some sort of audio leveling in the future, because in this recording Gene seemed much quieter than Carl, especially during the middle portion.

    Looking forward to future episodes!

    stumbled upon your podcasts this afternoon, thanks so much for putting this out there! As someone who is only just getting interested in web design, it’s really great to hear two professionals talking informally about the industry they clearly love! Props from Australia!

    • Gene Crawford

      Sweet! I’m glad you enjoy the show!
