    Vasco Duarte, master of Scrum, issues a call to arms for all scrum masters: you have nothing to lose but your estimates and feature factories!

Brilliant Inisghts from Real Professionals

I started listening to the podcast and have fallen in love. These guys, Jeffrey and Squirrel, share their wisdom with unprecedented candor and kindness. Their stories bring to life the real challenges faced by software projects. They don't try to make it sound easy, or cookie cutter. I can't wait to listen to every episode. Definitely recommending to friends and colleagues.
