This week on the show, we review Mike Acton's talk, "Everyone Watching This Is Fired", by way of Adam Johnson's article, Expectations of Professional Software Engineers.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
