We got Scott Tolinski on the show!

For the uninitiated, Scott is one half of the Syntax podcast and runs his own course platform at Level Up Tutorials.

Scott agreed to come on the show and answer all our questions about web development, kung-fu movies, breakdancing, and a few other things. We were a little nervous having someone like Scott for our first interview episode, but it turned out pretty well I think!
