53: Overwhelm | Donald Sutherland is Canadian

Play Download media
This episode we talk about being overwhelmed, out of our depth or burned-out. It's something most developers suffer with at some point. We try and identify what some of the causes of pressure are, have a bit of a pop at recruiters, clients and ourselves. I also reveal more than I intended about birds and Kate Bush as well as completely forgetting the word 'Euphoric" and other mistakes. Fun fun. After last episode's wandering, we're safely back to Electronica on the Jukebox. Mark picked 'Lowride' by Autechre (Incunabula - '98). I shared 'Siren Calls' by George Fitzgerald (All That Must Be - '18). Both tracks are added to the Relative Paths Playlist (https://relativepaths.uk/pl).

This software make our Jukebox snippets so easy to record into Audition, and we were kindly given a free copy. The music we use for various intro bits, stings and outro is ‘Vitreous Detachment’ by Origamibiro (http://www.tomwillhill.com), used with kind permission. – Ben

It's been 5 months since our last episode. In that time I've become a father (woah) and Mark has become really popular on Instagram. So it's a sort of catch-up episode, and a moan at each other about Apple, Microsoft, CPU's and Adobe and software named after disasters...
