I interviewed Dan Held, a long time Bitcoin advocate and head of growth at the crypto exchange Kraken. We discussed what Bitcoin and Silicon Valley were like back in the wild west days of Bitcoin, also if we'll ever see a reconciliation with Bitcoiners who have gone astray, and if this is the super cycle. Check out Dan and his work at the links below:

I talked with Bitcoiner Surfer Jim, we talked about his twitter spat with Chamath Palihapitiya, and what it was like to see that go viral. We also discuss his deeper thoughts on Bitcoin, but started off by discussing his favorite subject, surfing. Check him out on twitter, linked below, or on the website linked below for his Long Island Surf Park project.
In this episode I interview Isaiah Jackson, author of "Bitcoin & Black America". We discuss how he sees Bitcoin helping the Black community, as well as what he sees on the horizon for Bitcoin and how China could use Bitcoin to no longer be tied to the US Dollar. We also talked about his basketball tournament coming up at the Bitcoin conference, and when his new book "Bitcoin & Black America Vol 2" is coming out.
I interviewed Guy Swann, reader of all things Bitcoin with Bitcoin Audible. We discuss the early days of Bitcoin, wedding videography and getting absolutely REKT in his first investment, but HODLing through the tough times.

In this episode, I talk to the guys behind the website WTFHappenedIn1971.com, where we discuss exactly that, w-t-f happened in 1971? They provide interesting insights into why the current erosion of fiat currencies started over 100 years ago, and was accelerated in 1971 by going off the gold standard, as well as what all has gotten worse statistically since going off the gold standard, and why Bitcoin might be the thing to save it.
