Ever had one of those days, weeks or years? Have you thought, even briefly, about giving up the tech life and pursuing another career dream? Spurred on by a recent Reddit discussion, Sanj, Gwen and Neil look into the reasons why people might occasionally be tempted, and share their own half-baked alternate career plans. Learn which of your hosts was once a trainee electrician, who'd love to be a mile-high dentist, who took a crash-course in pub ownership, and who just wants to be paid to be on the beach.
