The SPaMCAST is on summer holiday for the next two weeks (SPaMCAST 666 and SPaMCAST 667. Today we are featuring an interview released on December 27, 2015, with  Gerald (Jerry) M. Weinberg. 

Gerald Weinberg is the author of more than 100 books, including the best-selling Secrets of Consulting, other non-fiction series, and the ever-popular Women of Power novels. He is a principal in the international consulting firm of Weinberg and Weinberg. The festschrift, The Gift of Time (Fiona Charles, ed.) honors his work for his 75th birthday. A website for Jerry’s fans may be found at .  A talk with Jerry was always profound, and I must admit that Jerry’s humor caused me to laugh more times than I can count during our conversation. Mr. Weinberg died on August 7, 2018, I wish I had interviewed him more times for the podcast.

Next week, the SPaMCAST will be the second week of our summer holiday.  We will feature another interview from the archives.  Show 37 was my first interview with Ed Yourdon. I have titled the interview, “Collaborate or Die!”  A bit over the top you say, well Denis Waitley once said, “online or in the bread line."  I think I was right. Ed died in January 2016 as he was pursuing his love of photography.
