Awesome Podcast 👌

I absolutely love this podcast! I often work at night and I listen to every episode. It’s amazing to listen to stories of so many people who make and create wonderful things around the globe. I highly recommend to anyone who is a start up or thinking to start a business to listen fir inspiration and tips. I wish there was a Monocle Instagram page featuring all the businesses and companies mentioned in your shows. Maybe in the future?

Invigorating

The hour I most look forward to each week. Unassuming, inquisitive, forward thinking. Daniel has it all.

New and EXCELLENT.

Such a departure from the usual drab business broadcasting, these guys have brought together an incredibly interesting mix of people from all sorts of new enterprises. For those like me with a new small business, it's as entertaining as it is informative as it is inspiring...
