Bitcoin.Review Podcast Episode 03 - We continue Full show notes https://bitcoin.review/podcast/2022/07/27/Episode-03.html I Scratched my own itch with Episode 01, so this will keep going as my best efforts place to talk about Bitcoin Project software updates and some other commentary that I find interesting or noteworthy to me. I also would like to invite you to send Bitcoin related questions, just go to bitcoin.review and click submit story at the top right. This week for Episode 3, our guests Justin Moon and Matt Odell return to help me read the list. I should mention the overwhelming feedback is that we have failed at being boring, so we should try to do better.
