Thinking about quitting Tech‪?‬ Tech Team Weekly

    • Technology

Ever had one of those days, weeks or years? Have you thought, even briefly, about giving up the tech life and pursuing another career dream? Spurred on by a recent Reddit discussion, Sanj, Gwen and Neil look into the reasons why people might occasionally be tempted, and share their own half-baked alternate career plans. Learn which of your hosts was once a trainee electrician, who'd love to be a mile-high dentist, who took a crash-course in pub ownership, and who just wants to be paid to be on the beach.

In the stand-up, everyone's still hiring, everyone's waiting for shiny new toys to arrive, and two of our crew go cold turkey on caffeine (one more deliberately than the other). 

TIMESTAMPS:

00:00 Start
01:06 The Stand-Up
08:58 This Week's Epic
24:45 The Wash-Up

LINKS DISCUSSED THIS WEEK:

Kia EV6

Sticker Mule

Reddit: Anyone else feel the constant urge to leave the field and become a plumber/electrician/brickie?

Lisa Crispin: I'm independent!

Touchstone

The Guardian: 'Relentless calls and constant abuse': why Britain's vets are in crisis
