PG Podcast - Episode 47 - Yang Hong returns! social capital, non-scaling, funding gaps, renaissance
March 2019 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Yang Hong (@dragonaire) is a data and engineering consultant who is currently at South Park Commons. I first met Yang when I visited South Park Commons to give a talk in May 2018, and we recorded a podcast episode shortly afterward: PG Podcast - Episode 36 - Yang Hong on alternative work lifestyles
I recently got a chance to return to South Park Commons to record another episode with Yang, this time in person! We covered a ton of topics around the challenges of building an independent creative career in a sustainable way.
