In this episode of Ventures, my guest Mike Anderson (https://twitter.com/mikeyanderson) and I talk about all-things BanyanDAO (https://www.BanyanDAO.xyz) and its upcoming April 29th Training Day event to teach Web3 product architecture, design, and management (https://www.banyandao.xyz/web3-product-manager-training-event).
