Episode 130: Zoom’s Bad Day with Jonathan Leitschuh
A short episode this week while we reshuffle the calendar a bit. Jonathan Leitschuh of Gradle made headlines when he disclosed the webserver that Zoom installed on every Mac where its software had run. He talks to Tom this week about what it was like to discover a bug of this magnitude and work with the Zoom team to resolve the issue.
