Sep 08, 2017 @ 10:52:59

On the Laravel News site there's a new post sharing some of the details about the upcoming season three of their podcast in an interview with host Matt Stauffer.

The official Laravel Podcast started back in 2013, and so far it’s been through two “seasons.” The first ran from 2013 through February 2015, with a mixture of guests and topics. Then came season two, which started in March of 2015 with Matt Stauffer as the host and it introduced Taylor Otwell and Jeffrey Way as regular guests/co-hosts.

Today Matt has announced that the podcast is transitioning into its third season of life. I had the opportunity to sit down with Matt to find out what we can expect with this new season.

Matt answers questions about what you can expect from the show in the upcoming year, the shift to an "interview show" and when you can expect the new shows to be released. You can read Matt's answers to these and other questions in the full post.
