genious genopolis ,

The best Macro and crypto podcast.

NLW is an incredibly smart guy knowledgeable in macro and digital assets. His shows may not get into as much depth as others (like What Bitcoin Did or Bankless) but I find these better because I ALWAYS make time to spend 15 or so minutes on this podcast. I also watch the others but don’t always have an hour or two to spend listening to the very in-depth podcasts. NLW, hope to meet you someday at an industry conference like Bitcoin 2024 - Nashville or somewhere else. Thanks for imparting your vast knowledge on us to help educate us budding digital asset fans!!!
