Hi, we're Paul & Kristoff. This podcast contains the ramblings & musings between ourselves — two millennials. Expect topics such as Linux, mountain biking, photography, beer, & the discourse among two friends.
TGIF y'all. ✌ Editor’s note: this podcast was recorded on Jan 20, 2021.
In this episode Paul virtually sits down with Mitch—a never-before-heard special guest—and discusses coffee, programming, blogs + note taking, self-hosting, and finances. A quality alternative title would have been “Cache, money, flow.”
