In our season finale Damian and Troy talk all things tech, business, music and failure, plus how Covid-19 will change the way we connect. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
This week we draw from the archives to bring you Troy Carter. Troy bets on underdogs, and it pays off.
