PIEdcast, a podcast from PIE

piepdx.com
PIE is an ongoing experiment designed to enable established organizations — corporations, government, and educational institutions, among others — to more effectively collaborate with startup communities in mutually beneficial ways. As part of that effort, we’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of awesome startups, mentors, and organizations which now comprise an ever expanding PIE family. And we’re interested in sharing the stories from this amazing community through our podcast, the — ahem — PIEdcast. Intro music: https://freemusicarchive.org/music/Tri-Tachyon/Little_Lily_Swing
