21: Startup Lubricant (feat. Bin Chen)

April 29, 2015

This episode, we talked tea with Boba Guys and Tea People co-founder Bin Chen! He's had one of the most unique design careers we've ever heard of and he tells a really great story - which made this episode especially fun for us. Hopefully, you'll dig it too!

If you have feedback or suggestions please don’t hesitate to reach us on Twitter at @designdetailsfm!
