This is the *best* podcast

Michael and Abadesi are on to a real winner here. Their combination of industry knowledge, relatability and realness is the reason why everyone needs to listen to Tech-ish. Great content, great chemistry and the perfect balance between analysis and accessibility for people with a passive or active interest in the tech/startup world. If you’re reading this, stop and just listen to an episode to hear what I mean 🔥🔥🔥
