Interesting to see inside

There are other crypto podcasts but I don’t think those are by people who actually work at/inside a crypto company. Thanks for doing this.

Insider’s perspective

Interesting facts shared about the inner workings of an acquisition by one of the leading crypto exchanges in the US. Looking forward to future episodes. Hoping to hear also educational content around crypto and the industry in general, especially for those that are interested in pursuing a career in the industry.

Lots of Potential After 5 Episodes

The first two episodes were awesome. They lived up to the name of the podcast, how it was marketed and what I tuned in for.

Episodes 3-5 I couldn’t finish because of the topic choices - other companies in the industry. I’d rather get that perspective from other sources.

I want to hear more about Kraken, how they are growing, how they lead their teams, and their company culture. Which is what the title of the podcast and the intro to the podcast are all about. Something similar to the blog you see by Buffer.com.

Obviously industry talk about what other companies are doing well or not well is appreciated but just having entire episodes about them isn’t exactly what I was hoping for.

I love hearing Jesse’s perspective on things as he seems to be quite a unique leader in the industry. Keep it coming but with some slight tweaks!
