Not a lot of poker talk in this one, but Noel may be one of our favorite all-time guests. Abridged summation on Noel:
Noel’s parents immigrated from China to San Francisco after the communist party took control (USA!). Noel graduated from Cal-Poly. In 1972, he left an engineering job to play drums in an awesomely-named country rock cover band called Asian Wood. In 1979, wanting to improve the audio quality of listening to music, he started Monster. Flash forward to 2014, Monster is a monster-sized company and just inked a sponsorship deal with the World Poker Tour.
The pod isn’t heavy on poker but it’s really interesting.
