Podcast 73: Jared's bug bear*

 We suckered another person to listen to us! Welcome in to the podcast Listener Jaybird (or whatever name you decide you want). Thanks to he and Listener Jim for some great insight on racial profiling. We also discussed episodes 9-12 of The West Wing, Season 4.

*"Often, especially when learning some large new system, programmers get stuck on something that looks like a bug and ask someone for help. Halfway through explaining their problem they realize where they had gone wrong. Never mind, never mind, it's not a bug, I'm an idiot. At a company I used to work for we had a stuffed bear called the bugbear. Before you could bug anyone else about your bug, you had explain it to the bugbear. Just thinking to yourself doesn't always work; there is something about vocalizing your mini-mental crisis to another being that engages the brain." --
