We're finding our stride in Episode 2, even though one of us is slightly under the weather. This week's discussion focuses on a recent trending article about modern challenges with hiring and interviews: we talk about technical tests, coding challenges, and how many rounds is too many. Plus there's loads of comments from our glorious listeners, we couldn't do this without all of you.
If you're here for the off-the-cuff asides, we've got plenty of those: we mull over the idea of recording an episode from within a videogame, and Neil makes plans to hack his new Peloton bike for the benefit of the podcast. Also, by complete accident, we're completely swear-free this week!
We're sponsored this week by CookMyGrub.com who have kindly offered to give away a £20 Amazon voucher to one lucky winner - tune in to the episode to find out how to enter!
High-fives to our new Patreon supporters this week: Dan Billing and Gilles!
