Scott is a really great host. He has on relevant guests that bring on insightful informative on different tech topics. I learn something new everytime I listen.
I'm not sure what this episode had to do with software development, but I'd recommend reading the economist Bob Murphy's review/refutation of Stephanie Kelton's book (on the Mises Institute's website). Hopefully Scott will have Bob on the show to give listeners a more rational take on the subject.
Entertaining, insightful and actionable! 👏

Scott does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of building a thriving career and life you can be proud of as a developer - from leaders who’ve actually walked the path.

Professional, applicable, and personable
Scott is a fantastic host and interviewer, and has a huge variety of guest experts. Been listening for years and never regretted the time spent - even if I wasn’t initially interested in an unfamiliar topic, I’ve always learned something useful.
The Hanselminutes are inspiring and educational. They always motivate me to try a little harder...
Excellent podcast all around
I’ve been a long time follower of Scott’s across Twitter, his blog, this podcast, and most recently YouTube. Scott puts out high quality content at a consistent pace. Do yourself a favor and give a few episodes a try and you will likely be hooked.
The good side of ignorance
Scott does a lot of podcasts about things he is still learning. He asks non-expert but intelligent questions. I enjoy listening to his learning. Even if I’m not interested in the content.
Scott, host of the Hanselminutes podcast, highlights all aspects of technology, innovation and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
Invaluable content for developers...
Scott and his amazing guests provide some incredibly actionable and compelling content, spotlighting the absolute best tools and tactics to help you drastically improve as a developer (and business owner). Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Hanselmintues if you to sharpen your professional toolkit and broaden your knowledge base as to what's on the horizon! 🙌
Scott and his incredibly knowledgeable guests bring an infinite amount of value in each and every episode. It's comprised of all the traditional things that make a tech show fabulous (innovation, problem-solving, etc.), but it's coupled with authenticity and insight you won’t find anywhere else. Thanks for putting out such a wonderful show Scott - keep up the great work!
The Nicest Tech Podcaster I Know
Scott is the most polite tech person I’ve heard. I’ve been listening to him for years now. I appreciate his perspective and his honesty. His guests are diverse and as a middle-aged white dude that lives and works in predominantly white environments I appreciate a weekly glimpse at the world through someone else’s eyes. I love the normal content. Strong technical topics and Scott has a way of asking questions that makes me feel like it’s okay if I don’t know something. We’re all learning. That being said, I particularly get excited when he veers off purely technical/software topics occasionally and interviews a SciFi author or a filmmaker for example. I find the stories and lives of these guests to be inspiring and fascinating. This is one of those podcasts I look forward to listening to every Friday morning.
Best tech podcast
You get the feeling that Scott has really thought through and done his research every episode and guest on this show. The diversity of the guests and the topics is out of this world and sets it apart from all the other tech podcasts
Scott is a well spoken and informed host. He hosts many interesting guests and the topics and discussion are top notch. Excellent job!
It's Scott Hanselman
Scott Hanselman's reputation precedes him in a way that few other developers enjoy. As Scott himself says, this podcast has really hit its stride recently, and I couldn't agree more. The quality of the audio and conversation sets a high bar for all other tech podcasts.
I just suffered through 20 minutes of totally uninformative liberal mush. No wonder most of the code I read at businesses is a bunch of garbage. People who think they’re smart but aren’t
Great show, very diverse
Some more words
This is my goto podcast. Scott is so amazingly knowledgable about so many things and knows how to dig into details of almost any subject yet makes them easily accessible even to people not experienced with the subject at hand. Most importantly, by far the most respectful interviewer on the podcastsphere.
Looking forward w/o hype
What I love about HanselMinutes is that you hear about cool uses of new tech, often in .NET, but in a practical context. No "tech for tech's sake" stuff that hasn't been used at scale. I never would have considered the .NET stack if I hadn't listened to this.
Scott is knowledgeable, thought leader in technology and a very engaging speaker.

Hanselminutes is just awesome. I love how prepared and engaging Scott is in these conversations with his guests. The diversity of voices is just incredible, I’m really impressed by this podcast’s ability to bring fresh perspectives in the tech domain. Great work!
I love hearing a different side of the Dev world, I like the variety this podcast has. Always good to listen to.
I love Scott's excellent choice of interviewees and his down to earth yet knowledgeable and eminently likeable style. I have just started listening and have already learnt so much.
One of my favorite podcasts
Scott always has interesting topics, and I really appreciate how he always asks the novice level questions (such as 'what does that acronym mean?') so that I can keep up with the topic being discussed
This is an excellent show, which I’ve listened to for quite a while. Great content. Better than most the stuff out there
Informative, Fun, and Fresh
I have been listening to this podcast for the past few years and have enjoyed every one. Scott is always well prepared and has great guests. I have recommended his podcast to everyone that will listen!
Scott is the top technical interviewer bar none. I listen to his podcast at the start of the week and it always makes exercising at the gym a little easier as you are learning and listening to a genuinely nice guy, which is a rarity in this business.
The Model for Tech Podcasts
The only problem with Mr. Hansleman's "Hanselminutes" podcast is that there is only one per week. I "discovered" Hanselminutes a few years back, and have exhausted the back catalog. Hanselman lives up to his promise not to "waste your time" and delivers in-depth, high-quality, and entertaining discussion that is at the perfect level for a podcast. There has not been a single episode that I have not found 100% worthwhile. It is surprising how fascinating darn near any topic can be with a strong interviewer and a knowledgable subject expert. Highly recommeneded.
Amazing even for normies
I'm a clinical psychology student and still love this shoe. It educates me on tech, but also so much on life. Definitely worth a listen!
Always interesting conversations
The content and engagement between interviewer and guest is great. Scott does a great job of teasing out interesting details and facts.
Broaden your outlook on tech
Humorous, insightful, entertaining and broad in subject matter. Scott has a diverse range of guests and always has an interesting conversation. On top of the great content, this is the best mixed audio quality) podcast I know of.
Consistently interesting, great production value, a great host and expert guests. Couldn't ask for more in a tech / dev podcast.
Efficient, unbiased, and a catchy theme song
There are quite a few technical podcasts out there. Few have the quality that Hanselminutes has. Very good single to noise ratio. Scott Hanselman does a phenomenal job of focusing in on the meaty parts of the discussion. This is unique given how many podcasts out there have long casual conversations before "getting down to business". There is a variety of content on software development, technology, and even personal/emotional topics. Listened to the interviews he has with his wife, very personal and entertaining. Hanselman does a wonderful job of empowering the guest and not imposing his own person biases (again, something that is extremely difficult to do). On top of that, one of the catchiest theme songs ever.
Scott is an amazingly skilled speaker and communicator. His topics are always highly interesting, and quite frequently entertaining to boot.
Fun, informative, varied, technology neutral - a must for developers of any experience
Hanselminutes is one of my go to podcasts. I listen to every episode. Scott is one of the few "celebrities" that always keeps it positive. Great topics. I have even had my wife listen to a couple episodes. He even has great recommendations for TV shows.
The best tech podcast out there
I listen to a bunch of tech podcasts (.NET Rocks, Debug, Gone Mobile, ATP etc.) but Hanselminutes is the best out there, by far. Scott *gets* what developers want to hear about. He picks the right topics and speakers and, more importantly, asks the right questions. He doesn't hand wave when it comes to technical topics - he gets his (and the guest’s) hands dirty with code and that helps a lot! A must-listen if you’re a developer.
Been listening for years - always interesting, a must for web developers regardless of platform.
Even episodes I don't think I'll enjoy I end up loving.
Greatest tech podcast ever!
This podcast always brings valuable info to the listener.
Too much good information!
As always Scott is amazing!
Best technology podcast available
Short and sweet. Usually around 30 minutes long. I've been listening to Scott Hanselman for years and always look forward to each and every episode. If you're a .Net developer, this should definitely be on your playlist. Go back and listen to the old episodes too - there's a lot of gold in there.
Scott Hanselman is awesome!
I had been following scott hanselman for bunch of years now. I love his topics and the questions he poses to the guests. I think they are really helpful for any Web Developer and Tech guys who want to stay current. Keep up the good work scott!
Informative and Entertaining
This is a great podcast. Scott always has interesting guest on the show. They cover a range of topics of interest to developers. Many of the shows are specific to the Microsoft developement statck. But many of the shows are applicable to all devs. I really enjoy the shows that focus on software of historical significance. Show 161 with the creator of the Wildcat BBS and show 172 with Dan Bricklin were fantastic.
Best podcast around.
Scott is an excellent teacher, and an even better presenter. He is full of energy and enthusiam that easily draws one to the same level of excitement. Out of his hundreds of podcasts, I can only say I've skipped a few, and it was just because I didn't care personally about the topics. If you're into tech, give this a listen. Find a topic you enjoy, and he'll make it worth your while.
Some episodes are great and full of usefull info.
Hanselminutes was one of the first podcasts that I discovered and it continues to be the first one I listen to when it becomes available. I appreciate Scott's technical acumen and selection of topics and guests. I also enjoy his discussions concerning the greater development community - why are people on online so negative and hateful? Why do presenters feel compelled to use vulgar language during their presentations and demos? Why do I feel like a phony? Each of these are topics that I think any developer should consider. Scott has also encouraged me to be become more active in the development community. I attend the local .NET (JaxDUG) and SQL Server (JSSUG) User's Groups and have sought out other community events like Code Camps and SQL Saturdays - almost entirely due to this show. I am also considering writing a blog about the things I do at work so that others can benefit from my discoveries and mistakes. If I could only have one podcast on my iPhone, it would be Hanselminutes.
Never fails to interest
This was the first podcast I ever subscribed to. Scott covers a variety of topics ranging from the purly technical to matters of human interaction even to family dynamics.
Long time listener; longtime fan!
I listen to a lot of different podcasts during my daily commute, and Hanselminutes is one of my favorites. Scott is a knowledgeable interviewer and attracts consistently strong and interesting technical guests.
Scott cares about what he does, and it shows in every podcast. Count me a fan.
Listening for years and will continue
I've been listening for years and years. So long I don't even remember the first one. Once in a while Scott will hit on something that isn't my thing but thats good. But usually when I take a chance and listen to something I would have ignored It turns out to be one of my favorites. I also like that not every podcast is tech. The episodes with his wife are just hilarious and packed full of good advice (from her of course!).
