I love The First Mind podcast new guest format

Micah Johnson awesome journey really shows you that anyones career is not linear. Micah being able to not care about what others think of his art. He doesn't care about content performance, which is amazing.

Mr. Neu ,

TFM Pod Review

I have greatly enjoyed listening to LG over the last 18 months. The mix of sports, NFTs and Defi has been sensational. LG can breakdown complex systems in to smaller, easier to understand concepts, which I’ve found extremely helpful!
