AUDIO: Steve Ballmer, former Microsoft CEO, interview on Freakonomics Radio (5/17/17)

imageIf you’re interested in hearing Steve Ballmer’s thoughts on his life at Microsoft as CEO & after, as owner of the Clippers, etc., check out this 39min podcast published last week on Freakonomics Radio:

Our latest Freakonomics Radio episode is called “Hoopers! Hoopers! Hoopers!” (You can subscribe to the podcast at Apple Podcasts or elsewhere, get the RSS feed or listen via the media player above.)

imageAs CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer was famous for over-the-top enthusiasm. Now he’s brought that same passion to the N.B.A. — and to a pet project called USAFacts, which performs a sort of fiscal colonoscopy on the American government.

Steve answers questions about:

  • his creation of the $10M
  • the decisions behind Microsoft’s mobile phone strategy & his thoughts today on Apple’s iPhone
  • his purchase of the Clippers basketball team
  • and more.

So if you’re interested in listening, check out the podcast online (or read the transcript) here:
