It’s the 4 year anniversary of the podcast. That’s right - we’ve been doing this for an astonishing FOUR YEARS. I’d like to personally thank both of our listeners for sticking with us for so long. This week, we’re chatting about big losses at Macmillian, casting our sceptical eyes on Stripe’s role in a free internet and Google maps being more accessible.

The birthday invites went out, and joining the party with host Bex, we have Greg Ashton and Mille Vardheim 


This week’s topics:
