This week, Natasha Mascarenhas, Mary Ann Azevedo And Rebecca Szkutak hold the mic

- We chatted some of the latest around FTX, the company trying take back its political contributions at the same time Robinhood is trying repurchase 7.6% share that an SBF entity purchased last year. We were also surprised at how short Twitter Blue Numbers really are.
- To throw it back for a moment, Mary Ann led us through latest with Stripe AND all of our questions around its financial backing at the moment. Becca reminds us that secondaryDear friends, may be quiet but more lively than ever.
