New addition to my Top 5 podcasts

First, this is a high quality production podcast. These guys know what they’re doing with regard to podcasting in general. Who knows, but it could be they end of making more in podcasting than in bitcoin. Second, the hosts are really excited about their topic, have done a ton of research, ask excellent questions, add interesting comments and keep things moving. It’s fun to listen to people passionate about what they do. This has become my new favorite podcast regarding bitcoin. That’s not saying a lot since I don’t follow a huge number of podcasts on this topic. But I find that some of the others just go too deep for the amount of knowledge I want on the topic. So I end up stopping listening. This podcast, at least for me, covers the topic at the depth I’m interested. Great job!

A+

Math + code = truth. These guys speak math and code.
