Informative…and frightening!

I’ve learned so much about the workings of Silicon Valley start-ups from the perspective of different roles—and it’s frightening how similar these experiences are to my own! Great show!

Outstanding. 5 stars. Two thumbs up.

Oh my gosh. Where do I begin? I’ll just start by saying that this is one of the most informative podcasts I’ve ever downloaded. I’ve always been curious as to how an idea can go from the incubation stage and grow into a publicly traded company. This podcast is exactly what I’ve been searching for. If you’re interested in learning more about software and tech, then I suggest you listen to this podcast immediately. Don’t wait. Do it. They deliver a plethora of valuable information. I genuinely enjoy listening to their podcasts while I’m on my lunch break.

Great job Stephen and Jake!
