    Porkopolis Economics: Episode 100



    Show Sponsors: trezor.io



    Donations to Porkopolis Economics via BTCPay are appreciated: https://donations.porkopolis.io/



    Porkopolis Economics covers macroeconomics, money, and sports from the creator of the Crypto Voices podcast, Matthew Mezinskis.



    Today, we fact-check the age-old (in Bitcoin terms!!) comparisons that have always been made between Bitcoin and PayPal. You need to simply understand that Bitcoin is basic money, and whatever is happening inside of PayPal, is not.



    This is also my 100th episode of Porkopolis Economics! As discussed at the video start, please note that from now on these macro and chart-type videos will only continue on YouTube and Rumble.



    Crypto Voices, our long-form podcast on Bitcoin and privacy with Alec from Halo Privacy and Michel from nodl, will continue to be streamed via the RSS feed as it has since 2017 (via Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc.).



    As always, thank you for watching, and listening!

Exquisite podcast!!!!

This is a great podcast to listen! Very informative with valuable information, intelligent and expert guests. Overall the insights and wide range of subjects covered on the podcast gives a great value!

john in 10 mile ,

strayed beyond expertise

The host and Peter Todd stayed far beyond their expertise when discussing Ukraine and USA wars on March 1 episode. Peter Todd seemingly defennding carpet bombing Dresen in WW2 was sick. And his contention that USA uses small surgical strikes and Russia plasters bombs everywhere is refuted by: USA took out electric water sewage in Iraq to harm civilians while Russia has left Kiev fully functioning. While it may be hard to see from the West, Russia has been restrained unlike USA in Iraq and Libya. You might want to look into the backgrround of Victoria Nuland and how she was involved in setting up the current Ukraine conflict from within USA State Dept.

Very Informative

This podcast is excellent for both people who are annoyed into learning about Bitcoin from scratch for fear of being left behind as well as experts who want to remain up to date. The Host, who sounds hot IRL, has a deep bench of international guests with a multitude of experiences and many points of view on the topic. The flow of the interviews are so conversational that you forget how nerdy the content is.
