That Podcast has posted their latest episode today, #19 - The One Where Taylor Joins the Conversation featuring special guest Taylor Otwell, creator of the Laravel framework.

Arrangements were made and since then, Beau has launched his first two Laravel apps and has started to use both Forge and Envoyer. Dave, too, has worked with Laravel a bit in the past, so it was a great time to Taylor on the show to talk life and shop.
