BMS 015 Actor Stu Stone (@stustone) Interview
In this episode I interviewed actor Stu Stone.  Stu made a documentary called "Jack of all Trades", where he explored the baseball card trading world and discovered how the card companies devalued their product by printing too many cards, and we explore the similarities between that and how governments are printing their currencies into oblivion.  We also get into what it was like for him to grow up as a child actor, and I get grilled by Stu to help explain Bitcoin to him the best I can.   Follow Stu: https://twitter.com/stustone   Watch "Jack of all Trades" on Tubi: https://tubitv.com/movies/505476/jack-of-all-trades
