Rapid-Fire: Conner Brown
Conner Brown is a student at Stanford Law, who fell down the Bitcoin rabbit-hole in 2018. He’s recently gained notoriety for his thoughtful writing on some of the attributes of bitcoin (and money) that are often misunderstood by it’s critics. I’ve really enjoyed Conner’s perspective on Bitcoin, so I thought it would be fun (and informative) to have him on for a chat.

Mauricio & Adam: Venezuela, Bitcoin and Ledn.io
Mauricio Di Bartolomeo and Adam Reeds are the co-founders of Ledn.io, a Canadian-based financial services firm that currently offers bitcoin savings accounts and bitcoin-backed loans. Mauricio is also originally from Venezuela, and I recently heard him share his insights on what was going on there on the 'Tales from the Crypt' podcast. After hearing this, I really wanted to pick his brain more and ask him about how socialism got started there, what life is like now, and how the Maduro government was (reportedly) using Bitcoin to circumvent sanctions. So, the first 50 mins or so is mainly speaking about Venezuela with Mauricio, and the second half Adam re-joins the conversation to get into all the details about why they started Ledn and how it all works. Enjoy!

Brady, Citizen Bitcoin: Journeying Towards a Bitcoin Future
Brady is the host and creator of Citizen Bitcoin, which in my opinion is one of the best podcasts in the bitcoin space. He has a very accessible style, is very well informed, and is always able to extract great insights from some of the top experts and entrepreneurs in the industry.  I thought it would be fun to connect with Brady, hear how he got started with the pod, and of course, have some fun talking about bitcoin:)  Enjoy! - More from Brady:  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/CitizenBitcoin  WEBSITE: https://citizenbitcoin.world/  More from me: TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/30lRjUB INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY YOUTUBE: http://bit.ly/2TDeMy9 MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex

Rapid-Fire: Young Nik
I came across Nik (@nikcantmine) on twitter and just loved his attitude and approach to bitcoin. I then somehow found out that he was only 20 years old (he probably referenced school or something), and I thought it would be interesting to pick his brain and get the ’20 year old’ perspective’ on bitcoin. This was an awesome chat, and Nik really appears to be a young dude with his head screwed on right - the embodiment of 'Stay Humble, Stack Sats'.

As a result, I thought it would be fun to speak with Jean to learn about how they do this and discuss the bitcoin scene in Canada.

Eric Voskuil is the lead developer on Libbitcoin, a prolific writer on Austrian Economics and what he calls the 'Principles of Cryptodynamics', former Navy fighter pilot, world traveller and highly regarded voice amongst many bitcoiners. After hearing Eric appear on some other podcasts, I was both intrigued and somewhat confused, and decided to reach out to him to try and get some further clarity on his opinions. This is a MONSTER 3.5 hour episode, so I've included some time/topic references below. Enjoy! - 0-30: Libbitcoin 30: Bitcoin's security model 1.20: How debt and the current monetary system work + Tax rules everything 1.55: Anarchy + Military Service 2.18: Approach to life + Importance of Trade 2.43: Lightning + Full monetization of BTC chain and implications - More from Eric: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/evoskuil GITHUB: https://github.com/evoskuil More from me: TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/30lRjUB INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY YOUTUBE: http://bit.ly/2TDeMy9 MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex

Further Discussion: Rui Gomes
Rui Gomes is the lead software engineer at OpenNode, a bitcoin payment processor with lightning integration. Flexible and easy-to-use payment processors are essential for growing the bitcoin economy, and bringing traditional businesses into the space. Combined with lightning, they represent the possibility for payment solutions that are orders of magnitude better than what is available from the incumbent players. As a result, I thought it would be interesting to speak with Rui to pick his brain, learn more about developments in the space, and ask him about the difference between what he and the team at OpenNode are building, in comparison to something like BTCPay Server (Spoiler: They are different).

Further Discussion: Hass McCook
Hass McCook is a civil engineer who has become a valuable resource in bringing clarity to the issue of Bitcoin's impact on the environment. This issue is often misrepresented in the mainstream media, so it is very important that objective analysis is use to understand it, and that it is considered in the proper context. Hass is also a very 'devout' bitcoiner with lots of interesting views, so I thought it would be fun to get together for a chat. Enjoy.

Dr Shawn Baker MD: The Carnivore Diet
Dr. Shawn Baker is a bad motherfucker. Orthopedic surgeon, Air Force vet, World Record holder, Strongman Champion, and most recently, outspoken advocate of a diet based primarily on red meat, also known as ‘The Carnivore Diet’, which also happens to be the title of his upcoming book (November 2019). I’ve had a life-long interest in nutrition, fitness and health, and have been wanting to speak with Shawn since I saw his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Interestingly, there is also a large contingent of people in the Bitcoin community who follow and advocate for the Carnivore Diet, so I thought some of them may be interested in hearing from Shawn also.

Yan Pritzker represents another classic case of someone who has re-directed their entire career as a result of catching the bitcoin bug. Specifically, Yan left his position as co-founder and CTO of reverb.com, the popular open marketplace for music equipment, to devote himself to educating people about bitcoin. His first effort in this new career has culminated in ‘Inventing Bitcoin’, a book he authored to try and make understanding bitcoin more accessible to a mainstream audience. For those people in your life that you’re trying to ‘red pill’, I think this book could be a very useful tool:) Enjoy!

Further Discussion: Brandon Quittem
Brandon Quittem is the author of a series of articles on Medium that has grabbed the attention and expanded the perspective of bitcoiners everywhere. In his 4-part series, Brandon explores the similarities shared between bitcoin and mycelium (the underground fungal network from which mushrooms emerge), referring to bitcoin as a ‘decentralized organism’. Analogies between bitcoin and other natural processes and phenomena have been made before, however none appear to be more apt than the one Brandon makes with mycelium. In my view, such analogies are important, and garner so much interest, because the degree to which an analogy is apt or appropriate, represents the degree of use we may derive from transferring known understandings or insights from it, to the the subject of the analogy, which we are all desperately trying to understand more. Anyways, this was a super fun chat for me. Hope you enjoy it!

Brandon Quittem: Bitcoin is a Decentralized Organism
Brandon Quittem is the author of a series of articles on Medium that has grabbed the attention and expanded the perspective of bitcoiners everywhere. In his 4-part series, Brandon explores the similarities shared between bitcoin and mycelium (the underground fungal network from which mushrooms emerge), referring to bitcoin as a ‘decentralized organism’. Analogies between bitcoin and other natural processes and phenomena have been made before, however none appear to be more apt than the one Brandon makes with mycelium.

Further Discussion: Ragnar Lifthrasir
Ragnar Lifthrasir is the Co-Founder and CEO of gunsnbitcoin.com, and an outspoken advocate of the responsible ownership of firearms. I’ve noticed that my perspective on guns has changed quite a lot over the past decade or so, and obviously it is a polarizing topic in our culture. I feel that almost all the dialogue on this issue is guided by emotion rather than logic, reason, data, or an understanding of historical context. As a result, I was eager to speak with Ragnar to understand his perspective further and have a calm and rational dialogue on this subject. Enjoy!

**Apologies for the audio on this one, new set-up didn't go so well, lol. It's worst at the beginning.** Gigi is another guest which I first came accross on Twitter. I thought he was putting out some well-articulated and insightful tweets, so I checked him out a little bit further. I then came across two great resources which he has put together: 21lessons.com and bitcoin-resources.com. In the first, Gigi grafts his own journey learning about bitcoin, onto the classic tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, in an informative and entertaining way, available in both written and audio format. It's a very convenient way to get caught up on bitcoin. In the second, he provides a collection of great content for those who want to dive deeper, it too is a great resource full of useful information. No particular angle in this chat, just thought it might be fun to connect and geek-out about bitcoin for a while. We touched on some of the important narratives around bitcoin, and how more are emerging all of the time, drawing ever-more diverse people into the space. Of course, we got a little cosmic too, because, well, it's fun:) Enjoy!

Dictation: Bitcoin & Fire - Forces of Nature
I was wroking on my computer the other day and somehow started thinking about the similarities between the emergence of fire, and the emergence of bitcoin. I started writing and later that day published it to Medium. I then thought, why restrict it to only the written/readable realm?  So I recorded a reading of it, and published it here:) I enjoy experimenting with the opoorunities that the new media/publishing landscape enables. If you like it, or have any other ideas for me to try out, feel free to hit me up and let me know!  Enjoy!  - More from me:  TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/30lRjUB INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY YOUTUBE: http://bit.ly/2TDeMy9 MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex

From the Archive: Bobby Lee (2015)
I thought it would be fun to publish some of the bitcoin interviews I conducted prior to launching the new podcast. This was my very first one, done with Bobby Lee in Shanghai in the fall of 2015. At the time Bobby was the CEO and Co-Founder of BTC China (now BTCC), a prominent bitcoin exchange based in China. This is a great episode for beginngers, as it really digs into the basics of what makes bitcoin special. However, it may also be cool for people at any stage in their bitcoin journey to listen in on what the conversation around bitcoin was like when it was at just $250. Enjoy!

Further Discussion: Alex Adelman, lolli
In the bitcoin community, the subject of adoption is often discussed. How can we get more people to start learning about and interacting with bitcoin? Many people are hesitant to invest in such a volatile asset, and are intimidated by the learning curve required to get involved, and this has slowed adoption. What if you could tell people that all they had to do to start playing with (read: accumulating) bitcoin was to install a browser extension, and shop online as they already do? Nothing to read. No money to loose. Just spend regularly, and earn bitcoin back. Game = Changed. I'm extremely confident that lolli will be a huge catalyst for the more rapid adoption of bitcoin, and as such, I thought it would be awesome to speak with the CEO and Co-Founder, Alex Adelman. Alex is a very open and genuine guy, and clearly passionate about his company and contribution to the bitcoin ecosystem. It was my pleasure to get the chance to speak with him. Remember, the 'Rapid-Fire' episodes are where I ask guests a series of standard questions around bitcoin, money and some other fun stuff. The 'Further Discussion' episodes are a chance to have an open conversation with them and go a little deeper on some of these super interesting topics. Enjoy!

Raoul Pal, Macro Investor: Global Markets on the Edge, the Bitcoin Hedge, and the 'Netflix of Finance'
Raoul Pal is a former hedge fund manager, the publisher of the Global Macro Investor (a macro-economic and investment strategy research service), and the co-founder and CEO of Real Vision, which he describes as the 'Netflix of Finance' (Long-form interviews with the top investment and financial people in the world). Prior to this interview, I had recently seen a thread Raoul made on twitter, in which he shared several charts which depicted an alarming state of affairs in the global financial system. I wanted to get Raoul on so I could pick his brain a bit about what he was seeing, how to 'play' this market, and what Bitcoin's role will be in this rapidly changing environment.

American Hodl: Bitcoin Twitter Gangster and Relentless Stacker of Sats
American Hodl is the pseudonym for a guy on 'Bitcoin Twitter' (people on twitter that pretty much only tweet about Bitcoin). I came across his tweets somehow, and just kinda liked how he got down, so I asked him if he wanted to record a chat. He agreed, so we did, and it was awesome. P.S. He's also the most relentless stacker of sats (translation: constant buyer of fractions of a bitcoin, known as 'Saotshi's' or 'sats') on Bitcoin twitter, and always boldly broadcasts his purchases. This may seem weird from an outside perspective, but I can assure you everyone in the community loves it, as do I.
