We chat with Alex Williams and Hassan Khan, a pair of techie policy wonks who have done deep research on the past and present of the semi-conductor industry. The duo also also brings some strong opinions on the current supply chain crunch and what it would take to build a more resilient and adaptive semiconductor industry in the future.
