This is true for me as well. Everytime Ryan is executing tests they run 4 times faster than with my computer. I know that you can speed up tests with spork, but Ryan doesn't do it in his episode and he gets 4 times faster results:
With the repo of this episode the tests run in 2 seconds on my pc.
On Ryans PC they run in 0.5 seconds or less
