  • I’ve just discovered the podcast (thanks, Ehud Kaldor!) and am really enjoying it. So far this episode, to which I listened twice, is my favorite. The idea of exceptions as a checked type is really fascinating. I look forward to hearing the functional programming episodes. An episode about just-in-time compilers would be great to follow-on the fine “Internals of GCC” episode.
