In this episode, Soumow sits with Laura Butler the one and only Star Treknical Goddess, the first female Technical Fellow at Microsoft and currently the Vice President of OneNote.
She specializes in debugging problems of all kinds, from crashing code to team morale to cookies that don't brown properly.  She's sorry that you're still using code she wrote 20+ years ago.

A great article about Laura here: Laura Butler, the Cat's Pajamas.
