Testers' Island Discs Ep13 - Andrew Morton

Andrew comes to the island to share stories from TestBash Brighton 2018, highlighting a few of his favourite sessions and drawing parallels to his own career experiences.

He also brings a particularly wide variety of songs spanning a range of genres, including satire, movies, videogames, musical theatre, and artists that it's okay to like even if they're not "cool".

You can reach Andrew on the Ministry of Testing Slack or via Twitter (@TestingChef).
