In this episode John sits down to talk to Paul Frend and Brian Lonsdorf (aka Dr Boolean) about functional programming, and its practical use cases on the job. Paul has released a new course on covering the topic of transducers that is the spark for this conversation.

Transducers are a a useful pattern that can deliver performance and readability, but are often misunderstood or obscure to many programmers. Along with transducers you'll learn more about monoids, folds, lenses and so much more.
