CBS’s television news magazine 60 Minutes featured Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen on its program this weekend, in coordination with the billionaire businessman’s releases of his new book Idea Man: A Memoir by the Cofounder of Microsoft.

Marketplace conducted a trio of interviews with Allen to air this week on Marketplace, Marketplace Morning Report, and the Marketplace Tech Report, where we quiz him on his relationship with Bill Gates, his post-Microsoft accomplishments, and his business philosophy.
