SPaMCAST 516 features our interview with Nishi Grover Garg. Nishi and I started by discussing the major differences in agile and non-agile testing and ended with a discussion of agile pods. This is a wonderfully idea-rich interview.
Note: I am recording part of this episode remotely from a hotel in Brazil!
