My favourite podcast

As soon as Equity shows up on my podcast with a new episode I drop whatever i’m doing and grab my headphones to listen. Love the analysis, insights, information flow and the humour from the hosts. The best for VC/tech startup discussions

Beeb fan ,

Literally, my favourite podcast!

Great info with thoughtful analysis whilst throwing in some good, honest humour and a sprinkling of journalistic cynicism.

It’s the only podcast I listen to the day it comes out...what with time zones I might be a little behind...but you get my point ;)

Keep up the epic work Equity Crew!!
