In this week’s meeting, Mike Beasterfeld of Better Know A Jackal shares his narcissistic motivations in listening to live podcasts, handling the asynchronous relationship he has with podcast hosts, and how he's afraid of evangelizing technology out of the fear of being judged.
In addition, we discuss the distinction between jackals and trolls, the culture of live IRC chat rooms & podcast show title suggestions, podcasting as an Olympic sport, and cattle driving.
It concludes with Mike committing to step eight by researching and compiling a list of podcasts he can recommend to rural farmers in Kansas to listen to on their tractors.

35:16 - If Docker were to clean up their security issues, refactor Docker into a bunch of individual components, and have an open standard that was interoperable with projects outside of Docker itself then it gets a lot more like Chrome and Firefox (using this as an analogy to explain how competition has pushed for a better web browser) - Alex Polvi
