  • #11: Disconnect to Connect, Aldo Bello & Marilyn Finnemore

    09/02/2017 Duración: 01h05min

    There are hundreds of media companies in the Washington DC metro area. But few of them approach the development of media content like Aldo Bello and Marilyn Finnemore, co-founders of Mind & Media in Alexandria, Virginia's Old Town.
