Really Fascinating Stuff

I honestly never thought a podcast about something as dry as supply chain risk would be so interesting. Ever since COVID happened and everything started shutting down though I've been fascinated and this podcast is a great way to learn about the subject. Jennifer has infectious energy and is great at showing you how even small decisions can have huge, world-shaking impacts, and the guests have been pretty interesting! Five stars.
