Relevant, insightful, fair
I really enjoy listening to this podcast. NLW does a spectacular job of placing crypto news in the bigger picture of the economic and regulatory environments. He also discusses the biggest stories in finance and the economy in general.
A university lecture nearly every episode
Having no former knowledge in crypto assets this podcast has brought me further along than I may have ever, by picking up current literature and trying to catch up.
The best part, political bias does seem to be muted and that is a huge plus for me.
Everything I’ve written previous still stands. This is the most informative podcast for Neewbs such as myself and possibly even for seasoned veterans in this space too. I just haven’t seen any other source put things into perspective as well.
The best part is I never notice a bias either way. The politics are other hot button issues are always discussed solely in terms of long term macro possibilities. Never do I feel I must be in a side or in a camp to listen and learn. Thanks NLW!
Still stand by all above. Also thanks to NLW just learned just learned that options expiration has an effect on short term pricing of the underlying. Guess I’ll have to learn how to track open interest volume for various strike pricing.
Keep up the great work to NLW and the others on the CoinDesk platform too.
This episode was super informative in regards to Archegos forced liquidation. The most important points:
Beware dealing won’t criminals
BTC and Cryptos are the solution not the problem.
Best podcast out there
NLW is the best. I listen every day.
