  • Wow! What an interesting podcast. Thanks so much. I’ve always been intrigued by the gnu compiler collection. Would love to dig through it some day.

  • Completely agree with kpd.

    Congratulations to Morgan and Arno for making a very listenable* podcast on a complex subject – really digging into some detail without ever getting lost. No mean feat!

    * It is a real word. I checked 😉

  • I thought this was such a great episode that I went to search for more work by Dr Deters and sadly found that he past away earlier this year.

  • I found this episode in 2019 by searching «GCC internals», then went to Morgan Deters’s personal website and found that «The Department of Computer Science regrets to inform you that Morgan Deters passed away on Saturday, January 17, 2015.». So sad!
