NLW is a class act

Balanced approach to the asset class. He is a must listen.

Love the show

Love the show!

Dejalu5 ,

Great pod, but lately inconsistent with publishing times.

NLW has traditionally been right on the money when it comes to addressing the hottest topics in crypto, but since he’s left Coindesk, he’s a bit inconsistent with daily releases. This wouldn’t be such a bad thing if he explained why he’s changed his scheduling, but his listener is left guessing.
The inconsistent coffee machine is soon lain aside.
C’mon NLW, get back in the saddle!
