Best startup focused podcast yet

Mat has shown his brilliance once again. By capturing early stage founders at the beginning of their startup journey he’s able to gain rapport with them and this puts him in a position to not only track these founders but connect them with resources (Angels, VC, vendors) they might not otherwise have access to.
