Thank you

Exactly what I was looking for!

MrPodcastListener ,

If you listen to just one crypto podcast...

I am highly appreciative to CoinDesk for starting this podcast! As a listener to a large variety of crypto podcasts, I can say that Host Adam B. Levine got almost everything right with this:

1) length - each one is under 15 minutes. THANK YOU! While I understand the depth needed to fully explore many blockchain/crypto topics, far too many in this space require the listener to make an hour+ time commitment, every time. Markets Daily is bigger than a bite, but quick enough to consume in a reasonable/enjoyable time frame.

2) format - two primary correspondents, without guest interviews. This keeps it moving fast and organized , with no sales agenda from the guest. News highlights followed by a note in depth timely topic keeps me feeling informed every time.

3) music - I like the ambience it adds. A friendly, welcoming feel that reflects the inclusive intent of this show.

Markets Daily is an essential addition to the crypto podcast world. If you’re only going to listen to one crypto/blockchain podcast, I recommend making it this one.

Al Bren ,

Quick and informative

So much is happening in the crypto markets. This is a great way to get a daily update. Highly recommend for those investing in crypto.
