PrairieCast: Ben Milne of Dwolla

Des Moines February 8, 2010 by Geoff Wood

In the second episode of PrairieCast we have our first guest, Ben Milne of cash-transfer startup Dwolla. Ben discusses entrepreneurship in Des Moines, Dwolla's expansion to California, and what he's learned since his company launched late last year.

Additionally, we premiered a "Week in Review" segment where Andy Brudtkuhl and I discuss the stories published in the Des Moines City Edition of Silicon Prairie News over the prior week.

PrairieCast can be streamed or downloaded from or by subscription in iTunes or RSS.

PrairieCast is recorded weekly at the 48Web Studios in Des Moines and is a co-production of Silicon Prairie News and 48Web.
