As it turns out, rice is a lot like life. In this episode, we talk about how.

Dan Ofchinick is a Scrum Master. He creates spaces for brilliant, creative people to do their best work. He helps those people get through their blocks so they can break open to brand new ideas, and turn those ideas into products that make a lot of money. Dan is the genius who makes sure the geniuses can access their genius.
