Overview

Dave Brown and Taj Reid take you on an inspiring journey of their adventurous careers. From DJing, writing books and building apps to graduating from law school, opening after-school programs across the country and dancing with Bjork in Iceland. How did these two weirdos end up at Microsoft? They’re not engineers. They’re not developers. But, they are problem solvers and storytellers.
