This week’s show is a very special one for us – we’re celebrating our 100th episode!
In this show, we flip the script with one of our early guests – Thomas Gray from Lumino (formerly Blume Jobs) – interviewing Anuj.
In this special episode Anuj reflects on what he’s learnt over the last 100 episodes, how things are shaping up in the cannabis industry, and how he’s looking to help people in this space.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thanks for all your support, and we look forward to sharing the next 100 episodes with you!
