Entertaining AND Educational

DU's Entrepreneurship Podcast is very insightful and informative. Each podcast gives a peek into the Entrepreneurship program and what students, as well as facutly, are doing and ALL it has to offer. I found each episode to be entertaining, while providing the listener with the many entrepreneurial ideas students at DU are presently working on. I am looking forward to the next podcast!
