Thank you

Cheers for a fun podcast and all the time you put into it.

Peace!

Love listening to CryptoBobby every morning on the way to work. He’s very knowledgable on crypto but explains everything very simply so it’s easy to digest. Some great guests and interviews too. Check out his YouTube happy hours if you want to see him chat crypto while drunk too ;-)
