Mr. Striving ,

Great Insider Conversations about the Crypto Space

This podcast is a tremendous resource to learn about the most frontier developments happening in the realm of decentralized tech. Highly recommended.

Like Neo following the white rabbit

Hats off to the Epicenter team. If you’re new to crypto/blockchain and want to explore the projects, people and philosophies of the space this is a great place to start. I am green in this space and have been listening to get up to speed. While I would not call myself knowledgeable yet I am definitely learning and Epicenter is a major part of that.

As a newcomer, there is an entirely new lexicon and taxonomy to get familiar with. Epicenter throws you right in and asks great questions of experts from many different points of view in Blockchain. I also appreciate that the Epicenter team are not afraid to respectfully challenge their interviewees as they did in the Yaya episode and the Sia episode. It’s clear the hosts have some philosophical viewpoints of their own and while they do give us a glimpse of these, they never take center stage in front of their guests.

Thanks for your great work.
