Equity Monday: Dogecoin is passé, but student notes are big business

Hello and invite back to Equity, TechCrunchs venture capital-focused podcast where we unload the numbers behind the headlines.
This is Equity Monday, our weekly kickoff that tracks the current private market news, discuss the coming week, goes into some recent financing rounds and mulls over a bigger style or story from the private markets. You can follow the show on Twitter here and myself here.
