Usually listen to instrumental music working and often find myself putting on Carbon Based Lifeforms for coding or writing sessions.

One of my favourite bands just released a new album :slight_smile:
Have seen them live twice, hope this will be possible again…

what podcasts @jsonify ? I listen to Rich Roll & sometimes Rogan.
Any suggestions in the tech/ development space?

Hi @Hallski - Carbon Based Lifeforms sounds quite good, I just randomly selected a time and it reminded me a bit of Aphex Twin. I will try it out one of these days.
If you like Post Rock (instrumental rock music) you might want to check this out. Some good rocking tunes on this mix.

Oh, I love podcasts like Swift by Sundell, The Daily Show, American Innovations, Something You Should Know, Hacking Humans, The Inquiry, and Life Kit…to name a few.

I highly recommend Reply All (https://gimletmedia.com/shows/reply-all). Although more in the general internet side than tech / dev side.

/beard-topic :bear: - To be honest, it’s never itched. At least that I can remember. I’ve had full beard for… gosh, for almost 20 years? Although have shaved it off on few occasions.

Funny story. When I started dating my wife, I once shaved the whole thing off “to clean up a bit”. She did not recognize me and made me swear that I’d keep it. Now I think it would shock the kids if I shaved.
