Jason is Smart and Fun to Listen to

I love this podcast. Any entrepreneur should start listening. I find this a great way to stay motivated and educated in the startup world without having to live in the Bay Area. Also Jason is fun... this isn't a mono-tone bland conversation.... it is entertaining and educational!

This show is great!
