Well researched

Very entertaining and most importantly informative podcast. You can tell they have done a great amount of research. I keep coming back as I’m interested in market/politics/global updates.

You Rock!

I’m biased as I personally know Mel Oo and Zoe!! But this show is so fun and I do learn a lot. Looking forward to more fun shows and guests! Happy to be a Patreon and support such a great show!

From a guest John Lewis

Such a great show. I had such a great time being interviewed by the team. Smart, witty, and fun. At the same time so much good information comes out of a productive conversation like that. I highly recommend that you catch every episode.
