Rohit gives real world insights

As a founder I’m voracious in consuming startup podcasts; This week in start ups, recode, Y Combinator. Rohit provides the best insight on HOW to run your company rather than discussing the fluffy topics around it. The best podcast for someone wanting to know and understand best practices.
