About this Episode

In this episode, rachel and Kendall talk about:

  • More than you wanted to know about grocery store ginger purchases
  • How some people use the term "a couple" to mean something other than exactly 2 and that they are Wrong
  • Examples of technologies that suck but people still use
  • Being caught up in the glories of the past (rachel would like to point out that she used a sharpie to black out Gene Simmons on her KISS shirt)
  • The downsides of Agile/continuous shipping of things vs Waterfall (warning, heresy inside)
  • Blaming growing inflexibility as one gets older
  • Unselfawareness in the face of serial shittiness
  • Two reasons: arrogance or laziness
  • How one gets stuck, how to know if you're stuck
  • Recommendations:
    • rachel: The Great British Sewing Bee (tv show, if you liked GBBO, you'll probably like this too)
    • rachel: The Alienist (kinda gruesome, moody period crime drama)
    • Kendall: fail videos from user mrmrmike on YouTube (great way to learn things NOT to do)
