#014 | Jack Conte (of Pomplamoose and Patreon)
Jack Conte is a hero of mine, honestly. I tried not to geek out to much on him, but I probably still did.
I was in California recently and got the chance to visit the offices of Patreon, a company that he helped found, as well as sit down with Jack to learn a little more about how he got to where he is, and what his plans are for the future!
If you’re not familiar with his solo work, his band Pomplamoose or Patreon check out the links below.

#013 | Ben Uyeda (Homemade Modern)
For the first episode of the new format of BrainPick, I got the chance to talk to Ben Uyeda of Homemade Modern. He does some fantastic project out of easily accessible materials, using common tools, but the results are always cool and, well, modern. Going back, Ben has had multiple successful businesses, and has a great mind for marketing.
