Troublemakers: Silicon Valley’s Coming of Age

Join historian Leslie Berlin as she presents Troublemakers, the gripping tale of six exceptional men and women, pioneers of Silicon Valley in the 1970s and early 1980s and how they worked together across generations, industries, and companies to bring technology from Pentagon offices and university laboratories to the rest of us. In doing so, they changed the world.
