Two big West Coast names in tech — Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey and Paypal cofounder Peter Thiel — came to town this fall. Our editor in chief Zack Seward interviewed them for this month’s podcast, which features conversations with entrepreneurs of all different stripes (veterans like Dorsey and Thiel, a 21-year-old Thiel Fellow and a Baltimore founder on his second startup, after the first one failed).
