Easy but Knowledgeable

Really enjoy listening to your team. I particularly enjoyed the one on OSL. Smart but a down to earth homeboy explaining the state of the (dis)union. Good stuff.

Best Crypto Podcast, even if you don’t mine!

This is my all time favorite crypto(blockchain) podcast. Through the lens of mining and this groups extended knowledge and experiences; countless golden nuggets and gems about how crypto works, markets, trading and the future of crypto are dropped for the listeners to find like easter eggs amongst tasteful jokes and commentary.

I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in learning more about crypto or for advanced initiates of the wild west that is crypto/blockchain. As they say DYOR and verify don't trust your information sources.

Real information from intelligent people

It is hard to find crypto mining information that you can trust from a technical and standpoint and that is also up-to-date with the rapidly changing mining environment. The HASHR8 Podcast crew shares information and research intelligently, while backing up the sources of info and providing reasoning for their opinions. Anyone interested in crypto mining should listen to this podcast!
