Had to update my review

Didn’t feel right leaving this pod poorly rated. Marty toned it down with some of the stuff I found annoying and not relevant to Bitcoin. The Bitcoin info here is still great and Matt and Marty are two of the best in the space.

Generally unpleasant

I love bitcoin content, but his content leans towards divisiveness and personal insults.

Highly Insightful Podcast
