Best M&A Podcast

From someone who doesn’t come directly from M&A this podcast is a perfect mix of high level and detailed best practices. I felt like these interviews were extremely informative and useful even though my knowledge of M&A is rather limited. This is definitely worth listening to. Keep up the good work!
