Cool to hear the team. Have been publishing stories on Hacker Noon for a few years. Great to see and hear the actual voices of the team. Utsav, Natasha, Linh, David - see you back on the internet!

As an immigrant, loved hearing more of Linh's story, but overall the feed is little too crypto centric.
