Chocked full of great tips

A new show aimed at small organizations looking to build tech products. It’s chocked full of
great tips – like the importance of staying agile – as well as covering the gamut of topics, like
which project management tools to use or (very timely!) the latest in AI tools. I really like the
short format of the episode (20 mins or less) and the variety of topics
