Episode 11: The one that Dave thought was kinda wishy washy

Beau and Dave have officially crossed beyond the 10 episode milestone but
were forced to keep things short because of various scheduling conflicts. Oddly
enough, the actual topic of the episode was supposed to be along the lines of
“making the time for projects and things” so that should make for a fun episode
12. That will be so meta. This time, though, they discuss what it looks like for
podcast co-hosts to not always get along, colour blindness, recent and upcoming
PHP conferences, PHP-FIG, recent happenings at work, and more fun encryption
stuff. For those of you who like them to keep it short, this one is for you!
