Podcasts are for Back Pats

On this week's episode of MARS, Matthew & Rizzle do some back patting. A lot of it actually. But they aren't patting themselves on the back, well maybe a little. Instead they talk about the platform par excellence that The WIP has become as a stage for highlighting cool, weird things at the bleeding edge of the crypto space, and the spillover effects all of this has had on our personal lives.
