Episode 54 - Gatekeepers | The Just Problem

This is sort-of a part 2 to our Overwhelm episode (Sorry for the nounification there, we had complaints!). This episode we talk about gatekeeping, and gatekeeper mentality. There's a lot of aspects but it's summed up by any sentence starting with "You're not a real developer if you...". The "Just" problem comes up too. Andy helps us work out how to counteract these issues, and encourage a more productive and supportive community.

For some reason I didn't have a Jukebox track ready, but thankfully Mark and Andy were well prepared. Mark chose 'Share the Fall - Full Vocal Mix' by Roni Size / Reprazent (New Forms - '97), we added this track to our Alt Playlist. Andy brought an apple for teacher when he proffered 'The Light' by The Album Leaf (Into The Blue Again - '06), which is added to the Relative Paths Playlist.
