Great pod!!

Recently stumbled upon this podcast and it’s been a delight. Transitioning from the VC sector into corporate financing, I’m looking forward to making new connections in the world of PE.

Great content on all things PE

Alex covers a broad range of topics in the PE realm with a cast of seasoned industry practitioners. It’s the only pod out there like it, and gives a peek into a lesser known world. As someone operating in a tangential space, it’s incredibly insightful on all front. Keep it up!
