    What’s the Deal with Decentralized Autonomous Organizations?

    Erik Voorhees, founder of crypto management platform ShapeShift, makes a case for decentralized autonomous organizations, known as DAOs. Earlier this year, ShapeShift became a DAO, “moving from a centralized, closed-source application with bank accounts, governed and owned by shareholders, to a decentralized, open-source application without bank accounts, governed and owned by holders of the FOX Token.” Voorhees explains how DAOs works could reshape business, economics, and politics. .

Nails-Chalkboard ,

Get a better microphone.

I love what Prof. Feldman has to say and his insightful questions, but I can’t listen to another episode until he gets a better microphone. The plosives and distortion from either being too close to the mic, or just poor quality make it impossible for me to pay attention to the content of what is being said.

false psychology ,

Impressive !

Reminds me of Charlie Rose debates and or discussions! Also similar to the Economist .. this is how I stay informed about important topics occurring everyday.

Great podcast, BUT….

Noah’s shows never fail to be interesting. I have learned so much from him and his guests. He clearly is prepared with great questions for his guests without pandering. When he disagrees, he does it with grace. The big BUT is this: I am a Pushkin subscriber and pay extra so that I don’t have to be assaulted by advertising. Noah betrays this agreement by having an advertisement featuring the most obnoxious voice this side of Tucker Carlson at the end of every episode. Not cool at all. There should at least be a warning that the show is a boot end and what follows is a paid advertisement. I’m profoundly disappointed with Pushkin and Feldman for this abuse of trust.
