Refactored #030: “Deere John, I Quit”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The guys go on vacation… or do they? Frank has the unmitigated gall to practice self-care, while Chris works during PTO to achieve maximum self-flagellation.
  • Chris thinks he has a bad power supply unit in his PC, and asks Frank for advice.
  • Frank rails against sales practices that waste his time.
  • The current technology talent shortage is revisited. Is it “because COVID?” The guys discuss the value in reviewing attrition carefully. Like as in, ya really should.
  • Saturn (the auto company, not the planet) sucked.
  • The guys get into a whole Right to Repair thing - iPhones and tractors and Teslas, oh my!
  • The pick of the week is the Odd Lots podcast.
  • … and much more!
