sam-mandegaranSam Mandegaran, who studied at Princeton and Cal Tech, is back this week to continue our conversation about start-ups, electrical engineering, computer chips, film, and more. Sleek Zeke from El Segundo Brewing is the beer this week. It’s a nice pale wheat ale. A call to Keith Blomberg, who directed One-Headed Beast, gets it started, and a song from Matthew Robins (a Snake Bit my Hand) closes it out. You can buy the album Noah’s Ark here.
