    EP103: NFTs with Michael Cohen

    In this episode, we decided to try something a little different. We invited Micheal Cohen (aka @TheTechRabbi) to join us to talk about the implication of NFTs for students and educators. 


    If you haven't heard of NFTs or web3 before, you're not alone but that's one of the main reasons why we decided to have this conversation. It will make you think differently about all kinds of things.
