Welcome to Apply Filters, a new podcast dedicated to WordPress development and brought to you by Brad Touesnard and Pippin Williamson.
You might ask whether WordPress needs yet another podcast when there are already so many. Our answer is simple: yes. Until now there has never been a podcast exclusively about development in WordPress that plugin, theme, and core developers can geek out on.
We love talking about code and and not worrying about annoying the non-developer listeners in the audience.
Our discussions will include everything from development in WordPress core, plugins, and themes. We will be sharing much of our own experiences as developers that work fulltime in WordPress development, as well as bringing on guest developers to share their stories.
The first episode will be published early next week.
