We love engaging with our audience on Magic Markets. This week, we asked on Twitter for people to send through their questions. Other than the classic “when moon?” for crypto (which we opted to ignore), there were great questions around our portfolio strategies and position sizing.

With a mix of solid investment insights and some light-hearted fun, we loved recording this episode and we hope you enjoy listening to it.
