Bill Gates at the University of Washington this week.

This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we share a highlight from Bill Gates’ appearance at the University of Washington, explain a notable expansion of Seattle startup Cheezburger’s business, and talk about a key takeaway from entrepreneur Rich Barton’s appearance at the GeekWire Meetup.

Our guest in the studio is Steve Murch, the CEO of BigOven, the Seattle-based recipe site and app company, who shares the BigOven story and talks about meal planning and grocery shopping in the digital age.

Also listen for our App of the Week (an extremely useful tool for movie-goers), and our Name that Tech Tune challenge, with a great prize this week.
