Better than a business degree

I love this show!

I’ve listened for a few years now and have pretty much made my way through the whole back catalogue.

I’ve got a business degree but have learned 1,000 x more things here that I’m applying in my business daily.

Listening to Jason and his guests will teach you how to think about business.

Thanks Jason and the team!👏🙌🙏

Entertains me on my Scotland to London night drives!

I regularly drive from Scotland to London and back and now spend the entire 6-7 hours listening to Jason's interviews. Some fantastic interviews and insights, interesting debates and often funny. Highly recommend signing up and watching/listening to the podcasts. My only criticism is I never get any responses to messages but I dare say he gets inundated by listeners.
Jason does at times come across as arrogant/smug but it's partly tongue-in-cheek. Watch out for the interview of HIM by someone else (it's on You Tube), where he talks about his father and his own struggles, failures and success and it's clear he's a good bloke.

Like you are in the valley

Will keep you up to speed with the SIlicon Valley lingo, thought process, today and the future; without being in SF yet !!! Amazing!
