CHUCK:  Hey everybody and welcome to Episode 52 of the JavaScript Jabber Show. This week on our panel, we have Joe Eames.

JOE:  Hey there.

CHUCK:  We also have Merrick Christensen.

MERRICK:  What up?

CHUCK:  AJ O’Neal.

AJ:  How do you decide the order each week?

CHUCK:  I just make it up.

AJ:  Okay. It’s only random.

CHUCK:  And Jamison Dance.

JAMISON:  Hey guys.

CHUCK:  I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv and we have a special guess that’s Isaac. I know I’m going to destroy your last name. Let me see if I can say it… You say it.

ISAAC:  Schlueter.

CHUCK:  Schlueter!

ISAAC:  Yeah.

AJ:  That’s so much easier than I’d ever imagined.


ISAAC:  I wanted to hear Chuck keep going on that.

JOE:  Yeah, it’s pretty good.

CHUCK:  It has extra constantans in it, it throws me off. And then extra vowels.

MERRICK:  I heard him just crying, “Shu...shu…” [Laughs]

ISSAC:  I have relatives that can’t say it right and it’s their name so…


CHUCK:  Alright. Well, do you want to introduce yourself real quickly since you haven’t been on the show?

ISAAC:  Sure. I am the author of NPM and I’ve been maintaining Node for the last -- Jesus! It’s been almost a year and a half now, a year or so.

CHUCK:  So just a couple small projects that nobody’s heard of, right?


ISAAC:  Yeah, a handful of little things on GitHub.

CHUCK:  Is there anything else we have to know about you?

ISAAC:  I enjoy changing my Twitter avatar to things that are funny or disturbing or preferably both.


ISAAC:  And, I don’t know.

CHUCK:  Alright. Well, we really appreciate you coming on the show.

AJ:  That is pretty disturbing dude. You’ve got your face on a really overweight cat.
