On the 100th episode of CMD+Space, the tables are turned and Myke is the guest! Stephen Hackett takes the reins to ask Myke all about the history of CMD+Space, why he loves podcasting and what he foresees as the future of the medium.
This week Stephen leaves Federico and Myke to celebrate The Prompt's first anniversary on their own. However, they have the help of David Smith to discuss the App Store after WWDC—as well as a whole host of follow-up and fun.
