TOA has done it again!

They produce my favorite conference / festival, and now they also produce my favorite podcast! TOA Media's content is consistently in the upper echelon of curation, and I'm very pleased that their new podcast does not disappoint. It's relevant, future-thinking interdisciplinary content at its finest (if you're interested in blockchain and FinTech, I can also highly recommend their dedicated ICO podcast.) Very charming hosts, it's truly a treat to listen to!
