favorite new podcast
Loving this podcast. I’ve been on a marathon running through episodes and it’s really getting the creative juices going. Great see so many diverse ideas at the early stages, helps me predict where the puck is headed in the future of tech.
Hoping to be worth interviewing one day.
Thanks for the terrific podcast Mat! 🙏
