Let's kick this episode off by saying happy 5th anniversary to the Windows Insider Program. In honor of this exciting birthday, we've put together a special super episode, and by super, I mean both content and length.

Our special guests will be taking us on a journey through the years with the Windows Insider Program. Think of it as our version of “A Christmas Carol.”

First, we will be joined by a familiar face, Brandon LeBlanc, to take a look at the history of the program and how it has evolved over the past five years. Then, we'll talk to Amanda Langowski, who will walk us through the present state of the Insider program and preview builds.

And finally, we will look out to the future of the program which we see as you, the Insiders. One of our many outstanding Insiders, Jeremy Sinclair, will be joining us to talk about how he makes the most of the program and what he thinks the bright future of the Windows Insider Program and Windows 10 looks like.
