Episode 76 - The Great Release Planning Debate

We revisit our often debated topic of release planning.  Josh slipped up in episode 75 and mentioned a new appreciation for the process.  Given Josh's past comments about his disdain for release planning, Bob jumped all over him and demanded that our next episode centered on this topic.  Find out what caused Josh to evolved his viewpoints and hear Bob grill him on this new revelation!

What are your views on release planning?  When is it appropriate?  If it is appropriate, how often should you do it?  Who should be involved?  We'd love to hear your thoughts.

As a reminder, any listener question/topic that we discuss on air gets one of our fancy new stickers!  Post questions in the comments, on twitter, or whatever your preferred channel is.  We look forward to tackling your questions and comments!
