Unprofessional: Brent Simmons Goes to Jail

Dave Wiskus and I now host a weekly podcast on the Mule Radio Syndicate. On Unprofessional, we talk with interesting people about how they got to be so interesting. We don't talk about technology, because a) that would get me fired from my day job as a conflict of interest, b) there are enough podcasts that feature two guys who talk about technology, and c) we said at the outset that we were unprofessional. 

Episode 2 had a lot to live up to; Pack Me Some Sandwiches—our debut episode with Amy Jane Gruber—was exceptional. Fortunately, the fact that NetNewsWire creator and Glassboard developer Brent Simmons had an exceptionally troubled youth makes for pure listening goodness. Enjoy the experience when Brent Simmons Goes to Jail.
