Worst day ever

What happens when your app breaks on a Sunday

On Sunday, we had a service outage. Jon and Justin talk about what happened:
  • TLS / SSL day of horror
  • Sunday morning Justin started getting messages from a few Android users that they couldn’t download episodes.
  • Then, the afternoon hits, and we started getting a flood of tweets, DMs, text messages, and support requests.
  • We talk about how we fixed it, and what we'd like to change for next time.
  • Also: how we're earning 29% of our SaaS revenue. (A channel we didn't expect)
