Down the rabbit hole in the Stack Exchange network

The Stack Overflow Podcast

On this home team episode: Discussions on Stack Overflow is a new feature that allows users to engage in open-ended conversations outside the site’s primary Q&A structure.

Plus: The psychology of downvoting and a recent FCC ruling on AI-generated robocalls.

Discussions are now taking place across all tags on Stack Overflow. Check out this one about why people keep proclaiming the death of PHP or this one on whether Jenkins is still the dominant player in the CI/CD space.
