  1. Another great episode!
    I only missed the details on Glide 4.0 status and release timeline.

  2. Hi ADB,
    I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but every time you guys upload a new episode, an older one is removed from the feed (the cap is at 25 episodes I believe). Even if this is intentional to limit outdated content, I still think we should be able to choose whether or not we listen to that outdated content. Thanks! I hope this gets fixed soon!

    PS: just in case you guys forgot, the atom feed is what's used to show episodes on Play Music (and I think pretty much all podcast players)

  3. Guys! I am desperately waiting for the next episode of your podcast. My commutes to work are not the same without your awesome android talks. I hope soon we get a new one.

  4. Great episode guys!
    And I guess the total method count for Glide is 2879.

  5. A Nice comparison chart
