    Kai Brown: Founder & CEO of Artists, Makers, and Repairs

    I hope everyone had an amazing week, and are ready for another EXCITING episode :)

    This week, I had a chat with Kai Brown, Founder/CEO of Artists, Makers, and Repairs. This episode is unique by nature, yet, so is web3, so get ready. Kai has been making NFTs long before the technology existed. His business (Kai) creates custom, chain-stitched jackets for his clients.  The jackets are all made to order, and there is not a duplicate of any of his creations, and he's been doing so for 6 years.

    Today, he has designed jackets for Jay-Z, Art Basel, BMW Culture Group, and is now he's taken the plunge into web3 and is bridging the gap between digital and reality. His primary web3 services are for the Doodles community, bridging the digital ownership of web3 to the physical reality

    We chat about his upbringing, his journey into being an entrepreneur, all the way to the present, and his web3 experience.

    What are you waiting for... Jump right on in :)

    Joey The Photographer

    Joey The Photographer

    WELCOME TO SEASON 3!

    Joey is a renowned photographer, who has taken the NFT community over by storm. His work portrays the mental struggle(s) of drug addiction through unique color pallets and added writing to the objects in his photos. Joey has been featured in a Sotheby's auction; his current collection "If that's what you call love" has a 1.75eth or ~$6,000usd.

    We go into the depths of hell in Joey's drug addiction, his obsession with art theory, and his unstoppable drive to create some of the most vulnerable art in the world.

    This is arguably the most special episode that I have recorded, as I am a recovered heroin addict with over 8 years clean. You will also get to hear some of the brutal and not so pretty memories of my life as well.

    2021 year end recap

    2021 year end recap

    Y'all... We freakin did it, what a season this was!! When I take a moment to reflect back on the year that we all had, I am honestly in shock and awe. This video contains my favorite and valuable moments of 2021.

    I had the pleasure of interviewing some of the dopest people creating the coolest shit, and I cannot thank you enough for your support, I hope you've gained value from at least one episode.

    Words do not describe the connection I have with this community, and with each individual person, I interviewed. Never did I think I could find a community as vibrant as web3, but here we are.  I'm sure I can think of more words later, but right now, posting this is incredibly emotional.

    Thank you all again for an amazing Season, and just you wait.... The plans I have for season 3 will have your jaw on the floor.

    gm, and WAGMI

    Alex Paley: Co-founder, Faraway GG & Mini Royale: Nations

    Alex Paley: Co-founder, Faraway GG & Mini Royale: Nations

    This will be a different flavor of the podcast, as traditionally we have chatted to artists, fund managers, this week, I interview the co-founder of a working web3 game built on top of Solana called Mini Royale: Nations.
    This isn't Alex's first crack at making games, in fact, he's been doing it his whole life, check out his LinkedIn. Alex's philosophy is simple, build a FUN game, and add an open economy on top of it. The current issue with web3 games is that they focus so much energy on economics, tokens, and financial incentives. If you don't have a fun game, none of the web3 innovations really matter.
    We chat about the previous games that he and his partner have developed, the current state of web3, and the atrocious launch video that Ubisoft announced. The last half of the episode, we chat all about his new title that is currently available to play right now.

    Matt Gunnin- Founder, Esports One

    Matt Gunnin- Founder, Esports One

    Matt is the founder of Esports One, an esports fantasy platform. Matt also founded Esportspedia and Leaguepedia. The one commonality you may find here, is that all of these platforms aimed to solve the problem of data in esports, and how it's used. We chat about how he and the team are using this data to enter into the world of web3 in a thoughtful way that gives true value to the community. 

    Towards the end, we also chat about the recent events of Ubisoft entering into web3, and what the "right" way to enter into this community is.
    They haven't been too public about any of their roadmaps, think of this as an exclusive first look into the inner workings of how they're putting the esports industry on their back into the metaverse.

    **Nothing here should be considered financial advice, and I was not paid in any currency to have Matt on**

    Jonah Blake- Chief Gaming Officer/Founder at Game Fund Partners LLC

    Jonah has been an investor most of his life and has the privilege of literally playing video games and saying "yes" or "no" to invest. Meaning, he gets to see most games at the idea phase and helps bring them to life! His demeanor is incredibly welcoming, open, and calm, and is always in Twitter spaces helping onboard others into NFTs.  In addition to hearing Jonah's story, we discuss NFTs in general, and how both gaming and esports can take advantage of this groundbreaking technology.

    If you're looking for a thought leader in web3 and gaming, look no further, because Jonah is your guy!
