Bitcoin is the future of money, that is my firm belief. I use this show to learn more about this phenomenon, and its various implications, from some of the brightest minds in the space, and beyond. I'm not trying to educate or inform anyone, I'm sharing my own journey of attempting to understand bitcoin, and delving in to some of the less obvious, but incredibly profound, aspects of its emergence in the global culture.

    Erik Cason Series EP 4: Exploring the 'Monopoly on Violence' in a Hyperbitcoinized World

    Erik Cason Series EP 4: Exploring the 'Monopoly on Violence' in a Hyperbitcoinized World

    This is the forth episode in my ongoing discussion series with Erik Cason.

    Erik is not only a good friend, but also a brilliant thinker and writer, who I respect tremendously. Erik's views have helped shaped my own in various ways, and as I delve into this new format, I thought it would be fun and fruitful to get him involved, for a more thorough discussion on some of the topics that we both find most meaningful.

    Enjoy!

    Conversations w/ Gigi Part 1

    Conversations w/ Gigi Part 1

    Gigi is a dear friend, colleague, and phenomenal contributor to the bitcoin space.

    Over the course of the last couple years we’ve had several (over 50?) calls where we mostly just hang out and discuss bitcoin. At least for me, they always end up being extremely enjoyable, interesting, and useful in helping me to explore and refine certain ideas, and generally push forward my understanding of the many aspects of bitcoin.

    Instead of relegating them all the the ether (or google’s servers), we finally decided to start recording some, in the event that anyone else might find them entertaining, useful, supportive, or otherwise worth listening to.

    So, this is the first.

    Enjoy.

    Bitcoin Plebcast: Our Relationship to Mortality w/ 'Death Doula' Erin Crawford

    I often ask the twitterverse if there are any bitcoiners out there who would like to jump on the podcast for a discussion about whatever they're into (or want to discuss). 

    Erin hit me up saying she wanted to discuss 'Bitcoin and Death'.  

    How could I resist?  

    Enjoy:)

    Bitcoin Plebcast: The Journey to Becoming a Bitcoin Developer w/ Austin Kelsay

    I often ask the twitterverse if there are any bitcoiners out there who would like to jump on the podcast for a discussion about whatever they're into (or want to discuss).  

    Austin hit me up recently offering to share his journey of becoming a bitcoin developer, as someone with no background or natural inclination for computer science / engineering.  

    What followed was an incredible discussion of perseverance, dedication, and the powerful motivating (and transformative) force which bitcoin represents for Austin (and many others).  

    Enjoy!

    Bitcoiner Book Club - The Mandibles

    Bitcoiner Book Club - The Mandibles

    The idea of the Bitcoiner Book Club is to discuss books that seem relevant to the subjects and themes related to bitcoin, or otherwise found to be meaningful or interesting to bitcoiners (at a minimum), and therefore worthy of discussion.  

    'The Mandibles' by Lionel Shriver is one such book, so we got a crew together to discuss.  

    Please note: MANY SPOILERS!  

    Enjoy!
