Mike Ambrosino ,

No one else talking about finance from this angle

The world has fused between old guard and new money. The people who are winning are the ones who are treading the lines of not taking themselves too seriously & being open minded.

Whether it’s internet trends or historical references. These guys nail it

Always great

Always different and always great. Keep being yourselves and thanks for getting me through work, appreciate you

Cory_d_w ,

Entertaining, funny, and educational

These guys strike an amazing balance. It’s a light hearted, easy listen but is also super informative. I always walk away feeling caught up on current events in business/crypto. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay entertained and informed.
