Really enjoying the niche that Michael and Marco have carved out. Highlighting smaller companies at the edge has helped me better understand the on the ground application of major trends in industry. Looking forward to see where they take this.
High level executive content makes it a must hear
Marco and Michael have hit the ground running. I put M4Edge up there with other energy podcasts like The Energy Gang, Resources Radio, Grid Geeks and Climate One. Don't miss out. You'll be glad you subscribed.
Magnificent Masters of Markets (and startups)
Michael and Marco are great hosts and run an important and interesting show on tech and business. There is a lot of blah blah blah out there on startups and these guys ask questions to experts that students of this critical sector want analyzed and explored. A bonus is that both hosts have NPR quality radio voices.
