Nice Podcast Tom & Flexo! Flexo, I’ve always wondered, is that your real voice when you say “I’m Flexo” in all your intros? :)

Manisha, I’m impressed you asked your husband to marry you 4 times! That could be a good chapter!

BTW, why did you leave Sands Capital? Seems like they are gathering assets no?

Best, Sam

That is, in fact, my real voice. But not my real name. Yet.
