In this episode we have our first listener-submission: Rob Sullivan talks about his obsessive-ness and how it helps him, and hinders him in his job. Rory Blyth and Scott then talk openly about Rory's compulsion to keep learning - which leads him to, among other things, stop policemen in the street and ask them about take-downs.
In this episode we talk to 2 developers who harness their obsessive tendencies to further themselves in their career.
