Connecting dots

It’s a pleasure to listen to a podcast that makes such a clear connection between Austrian Economics and Bitcoin. A great place to learn the basics and also get some great fresh perspectives from guests, on issues that will affect Bitcoin in the future.

Interesting Topics and Overall Great Podcast

I enjoyed listening to your interview with Philip Glazman! I was very interested in learning about using lightning as an exchange. What a valuable podcast with great conversation topics! Definitely a unique podcast!

Essential Podcast for Bitcoin Learning

Stephan Livera Podcast is essential for learning and staying up to date on all topics regarding bitcoin, from economic theory, bitcoin core development, mining, nodes, lightning, privacy, opsec, etc. I recommend newcomers to not just listen to the latest episodes but also listen to older episodes as they help build a strong foundation for learning and understanding bitcoin. You will be exposed to a wide range of guests including well known figures in the bitcoin space but I especially like the episodes with developers and builders, which provide deep insights about bitcoin.
