Very good start, love that Carl has his own show now. Glad they talk little about Bitcoin, there are plenty of those podcasts.
One small peeve.. the sound effects. Please chill with the constant sound effects.
Solid start but needs podcast 2.0 tags so people can send donations when they like.
That Jack Mallers Guest was genius.
Also needs more Bitcoin content by people who don’t sound like boomers when attempting to talk.
Hosts interrupt too much argh!
I want to hear the people of industry being interviewed finish a complete thought without John and Deidre constantly interrupting. These two butcher numerous interviews because they cannot give the professional courtesy to let someone answer a question completely before another question is forced in. Love the show, but it would be so much better if the hosts would stop cutting people off!
