    Robert Breedlove: What is Money? | SALT Talks #240

    Robert Breedlove is a freedom maximalist, ex-hedge fund manager, and philosopher in the Bitcoin space.

To this end, Robert's mission is to restore freedom, truth, and virtue in our world by tenaciously asking the question: "What is Money?"

    He is also a YouTuber and the host of the “What Is Money?” podcast. Through his writing and media work, Robert aims to elucidate the importance of freedom and self-sovereignty across all spheres of human action. Find Robert on Twitter (@Breedlove22) where he posts about Bitcoin, macroeconomics, and philosophy.

    Daniel Silva: The Cellist | SALT Talks #236

    Daniel Silva: The Cellist | SALT Talks #236

    Daniel Silva is an American journalist and author of thriller and espionage novels. Prior to his novelist career, Daniel became a journalist at the age of thirty-three, directing CNN’s political talks. There is a tremendous amount of historical content worked into all of his novels.

    Elegant and sophisticated, provocative and daring, The Cellist explores one of the preeminent threats facing the West today—the corrupting influence of dirty money wielded by a revanchist and reckless Russia. It is at once a novel of hope and a stark warning about the fragile state of democracy. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva is regarded as his generation’s finest writer of suspense and international intrigue.
