"The Mikes" decided to dive into the idea of quality, not only regarding the type of work produced by people but the quality of the tools used by said people to make quality work. We talk about how we come to the decision of what tools we use, the value we place upon the tools themselves and the work that comes from using them. The emphasis is often placed on speed when productivity gets talked about, but we decide to go in a different direction and wind up with a "quality" discussion as a result.
(Note: While this may seem like a bonus episode this week, it's really not. Mikes on Mics is moving to Fridays, so rather than have you wait nearly two weeks to get another does of Schechter and Vardy, we thought we'd do this instead.)
