    108: How Nimble are You?

    This week, Mark and Gordon discuss the physics behind jumping into a pool from the fourth floor of an apartment complex. They also talk about working with xcconfig files and other nerdy stuff, but we know everyone is really here to know more about this pool situation.

    107: I Need a Status Text Field Here, Here, and Here

    This week, Mark and Gordon discuss the recent spate of App Store rejections for use of "private" API (spoiler: it's not private API), Gordon's new obsession with project templating, and the decline of Skype.

    106: More and Weirder Facial Hair

    Gordon got a new mic for the office! It only kinda helped. Sorry, we're working on it. Disappointed emoji don't spell disappointed emoji just use the emoji.

    After chatting about unique facial hair choices and Swift on the server, Gordon and Jack get dangerously close to being Yet Another Tech Podcast as they discuss missing headphone jacks, being angry about missing headphone jacks, AirPods, and being angry about AirPods.

    105: What if We Just Stay on Swift 2?

    This week Mark and Gordon chat about their respective git workflows, Swift operator precedence groups, and a general uneasiness around the tooling in the iOS ecosystem (but what else is new?).

    104: Drunk on the Kool Aid

    This week, Mark and Jack talk about job hunting and what to look for when pursuing new opportunities. They also discuss the pros and cons to sticking with Apple dependencies (of course talking about CoreData) and Swift 3 adoption.

    103: That Tumbleweed Has a +2 WAR

    This week, Mark and Gordon complete their transition to Salty Old Developers™ live on air after a discussion on the state of dependency management with Xcode betas. Come for the talk about operators in Swift 3 and the exciting possibility of higher-kinded types in Swift 4 but stay for the analysis of a tumbleweed's nasty knuckle-curve.

    102: The Bakery District

    This week, Jack and Mark talk about everything going wrong in the world of technology. From Swedish cable boxes to XVim and Xcode 8. Come for that, stay for the discussion about the pitfalls of developing iOS extensions and the impending Swift 3 migration.

    101: SELECT is Not Broken

    Gordon and Jack (or is it Reda?) sit down to chat about "good" and "bad" architecture decisions and how early adoption with Swift has framed interactions with the language and tools today.

    100: The Live Call In Show

    On their 100th episode, which they definitely did not forget about while recording, Mark and Gordon hold their first ever live call in giveaway! Unfortunately nobody participated, so they move on to talk about Gordon's Xcode plugin for Vim and how he works in Vim for day to day iOS development. Gordon's audio still sucks and he's incredibly sorry about that.

    99: Just UIKit Things

    This week Mark is joined by special guest and host of Tentative, Reda Lemeden. Having a designer-slash-developer on the show allows Mark to not shut up about UIKit, best practices for bridging Swift and Objective-C frameworks, and fancy new features in iOS 10.
