Episode 143: One Last Jam with The “Dude” David Hussman

The Agile Revolution Podcast

The Agile community recently lost its friend and one of its most inspirational members in David Hussman. Craig and Tony were privileged to speak to him in one of his last interviews at YOW! Conference in Brisbane.
