Real voices and a great variety
I've been following this show every week for the past 8 months. But I've had some problems playing it from Stitcher the past 3 weeks. As an aspiring entrepreneur I take away a lot from voices of entrepreneurs on ground - their triumphs, challenges and ideas. It is also well curated - good themes, trends, people and places. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs not only a dose of inspiration but also a reality check as they navigate through setting up on their own.
