This episode of Testers' Island Discs was supported by TestRail, the test management tool that makes testing simpler - it works the way you test. Learn more and try it for free at www.gurock.com/testrail.

After an illness-enforced absence, the island is once again open for business as we welcome Karo Stolzenburg to talk about her experiences in Cambridge, the growth of the Software Testing Clinic, and an unavoidable discussion about Brexit.

We also get into discussions about creating safe environments for learning, generating test ideas and avoiding cognitive biases in our testing, whilst also finding time to hear a range of song selections which span TV themes, 90s rock, and our first non-English-language offering.

If you'd like to get in touch with Karo, you can reach her on Twitter @karostol or read her blog at https://putzerfisch.wordpress.com.
