Great show

I really like this show and listening since day one. Great insights and different than others. Worth listening for sure.

My new favorite

Not your run-of-the-mill business podcast. And it’s not just a business podcast. It defies categorization. Part business story, part culture story, but all compelling and well-produced.

Love this podcast!

I've literally never been interested in anything about the economy until I listened to this. These stories are so compelling and have made me understand the economy and its role in my life in an entirely different way. Listen to this!!
