Go deep in many crypto topics

Worst part of this show is its theme music. I find myself skipping past Epicenter in my playlist just to avoid it! Hosts: please find something better.

Ok, review of content now:

I have shared this podcast with friends who just started thinking about “investing” in cryptocurrencies and they have been intimidated/overwhelmed by it. But I like the depth! I certainly don’t follow all of it either, but I just soak it in. The robustness of the hosts’ & guests’ mental models as they discuss economics, or cryptography, or game theory, or whatever other niche—it helps give me a solid starting point as I continue my own exploration. I’m fairly new at a company building a blockchain, and I often feel like one of the dumber ones in the room. But when I keep up with Epicenter, I find myself filling in gaps in my coworkers’ knowledge.
