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.

    The Bitcoin Rapping Revolutionary - The Extraordinary @tip_nz

    The Bitcoin Rapping Revolutionary - The Extraordinary @tip_nz

    Tip, in my opinion, is the creator of some of the most entertaining and educational videos in the bitcoin space.
    She combines informative and clever lyrics, with captivating imagery, and engaging music, to create something that anyone can enjoy and learn from.
    After her release of 'The Great Resistance', an incredibly inspiring longer-form piece with AI-generated art and voiceovers, I figured it was about time I invited her on the show to have a discussion about her work.
    Enjoy!

    'Treating' Depression w/ Psychedelics & Bitcoin, and Dissolving Perverse Incentives w/ @Ricardo Negri

    'Treating' Depression w/ Psychedelics & Bitcoin, and Dissolving Perverse Incentives w/ @Ricardo Negri

    Rick messaged me on twitter mentioning that he'd be interested in coming on for a discussion.

    What followed was an honest, open, and fascinating discussion about how bitcoin and psychedelics allowed him to get off of his dependency on pharmaceutical drugs to treat his depression, turn his life around, and develop a more hopeful and motivated vision for the future.

    Enjoy!

    Pawel recently responded to one of my tweets, saying that he'd like to come on and have a chat, particularly about his efforts on educating and helping 'at risk' populations save in bitcoin.

    That was enough for me.

    Enjoy!

    I thought it sounded like an interesting discussion could be had, and it turns out I was right.
