Michael goofs up James background but gets James to share some information about the early days at Apple. James gets Michael to open up about why he reallly got his certification. The discussion turns to exploratory testing and Michael's experience trying to implement it in a regulated environment. James talks about his regulated tested experience. It's a wealth of information and tips on testing in that environment. James gives a hint about his next project and it certainly sounds exciting.
