Dave Rael started his podcast as a way to overcome fear and access an entrepreneurial side of himself. In his interviews with prominent engineers, Dave identifies patterns and strategies that have enabled his guests to succeed. He also finds the human side–namely the fallibilities and failures–of legendary developers, which makes it easier to imagine ourselves accomplishing the feats of his guests.
