Testers' Island Discs Ep 8 - Gem Hill


This episode of Testers' Island Disc 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.

We kick-off the new year with podcast legend Gem Hill, who shares her thoughts about the challenges of starting a new role, finding allies within an organisation, and the quest to improve awareness around mental health in tech.

Gem selects a raucous set of songs with some colourful lyrics in places, and there are multiple other avenues of cross-podcast chat as we discuss testing, movies and a sneak peek into season two of Inner Pod.

If you'd like to get in touch with Gem, or to request a link to the mental health Slack group which Gem references, you can reach her on Twitter @Gem_Hill, @LetsTalkTests and @InnerPod!
