Five Things

Technology Podcasts >

Five Things is a show about JavaScript, Node and all things web. Each episode features an honored guest interviewed by one of our mediocre (and frequently bald) hosts giving you five things about the hottest industry topics, tools and frameworks. Why five things? Mostly because six seemed like too many and four felt like we weren't even trying. Also, we're not great with titles. Enjoy the show and make sure to follow @ch9 on Twitter for new episodes.
