Entertaining, funny, and educational

These guys strike an amazing balance. It’s a light hearted, easy listen but is also super informative. I always walk away feeling caught up on current events in business/crypto. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay entertained and informed.

Trung Sent Me Here ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Listen to episode 31 and hear Trung breathlessly explain why Costco is amazing and you’ll be hooked. Looking forward to Jack dropping his pizza NFT project. Hope I get an ultra rare pie. New profile pic coming. 🍕 In my top 3 podcasts right now.
