Welcome to the 12th and latest episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. editor James Ledbetter.

Senior editor Kris Frieswick explores Mike Judge's HBO show Silicon Valley--is it a parody of the land of innovation or is it more like a documentary?

No it is not. In reality, it is crazier."
