A Great Expansion of Learning

A New Angle is not just a business podcast. Justin and his guests discuss everything from economics and all things business to history and current cultural/social issues that affect not just Montana, but all of us. It’s engaging and interesting. I never leave without a better understanding of the subject at hand. Highly recommend this podcast to one and all!
