Lubomir Arsov, Creator of 'In Shadow', on the Sickness of 'Modern' Culture, Truth, Spirituality, Religion, Transformation, and Bitcoin
Lubomir Arsov is the creator of the film 'In Shadow'. The film deals with concepts and themes relating to the degradation of modern culture, and the psychological, emotional, ideological, economic, and spiritual antecedents which have contributed to it. It is a sharp and provocative film, which illustrates the ugliness of our current situation, but finishes with powerful imagery of hope and transcendence. Although there was no reference to bitcoin in the film, many of the same criticisms of modern culture are often discussed in the bitcoin space, and so I thought it would be interesting to speak with Lubo, to hear more about his perspective and motivations in creating the film. What follower was a broad conversation about spirituality, psychedelics, psychology, religion, value, bitcoin, and much more. Enjoy! -- More from Lubo: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/lubomirarsov THE FILM: https://youtu.be/j800SVeiS5I More from me: TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY The BitBox02 Bitcoin-Only Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Revolutionary Cycles Converging with Mark Moss
For many, the events and changes which we observe throughout the course of our life can appear random, seemingly without predictable cause or pattern. As a result, we relegate ourselves to simply reacting to things as they occur, which often means we are far more subject to the imposition which those events cause, than we might have been, had we acted sooner. To some, it feels like we are currently entering into another historical period of great change. To others, it simply seems like a disruption, soon to return to regular programming. Making the case (to friends and loved ones), that it is indeed the former which is occurring, and therefore certain special measures should be taken to survive and thrive in such an environment, can be a difficult task. On a recent trip to El Salvador, Mark was explaining to me his thesis about the convergence happening right now of several recurring cycles, and how it may be a useful framework for anticipating what is to come. I thought that it might be a useful framework to help explain what is happening to others, so I invited Mark on to discuss in detail.

Fighting and Bitcoin w/ Professional MMA Fighter Olivier 'The Canadian Gangster' Aubin-Mercier
Oliver Aubin-Mercier is a professional MMA fighter from Quebec, Canada, currently on a 2-fight win streak in the Professional Fighters League, after an impressive 11 fight run in the UFC. He recently made waves in the bitcoin space through his sponsorship by Bull Bitcoin.

Douglas Bakkum, CEO of ShiftCrypto, and Co-Creator of the BitBox02 (bitcoin-only) Hardware Wallet
Buying bitcoin is not enough. It is essential to take self-custody of your bitcoin, to benefit from the full self-sovereignty over your money that bitcoin permits.   Hardware wallets have become the preferred way to custody bitcoin, which makes it important to understand how they are developed and built.   Therefore, I thought it would be interesting to have the co-creator of popular hardware wallet, the BitBox02 (bitcoin-only edition), on the show, to discuss all the details that go in to these extremely important devices.   Enjoy!   -- DISCLAIMER: The BitBox02 is a sponsor of this show.   More from Douglas / ShiftCrypto:  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/douglasbakkum TWITTER: https://twitter.com/ShiftCryptoHQ WEBSITE: https://shiftcrypto.ch/bitbox02/bitcoin-only/?utm_source=rapidfire&utm_medium=webcast&utm_campaign=landingpage&ref=rapidfire    More from me:  TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY  The BitBox02 Bitcoin-Only Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

The Beautiful Beginnings of Bitcoin Beach in El Zonte w/ Jorge and Chimbera
I recently made a trip down to El Zonte, El Salvador, to see and experience what has become a famous town for its broad use of bitcoin, and the impetus for El Salvador's new Bitcoin legal tender law. I met Jorge and Chimbera at Hope House, a home base for charitable work they have been doing in the area, and a work space for bitcoin-related projects. They told me that they exercise every morning at 6am, so I asked if I could join them. For the next 4 days we got up early, went on tough jungle runs, ocean swims, and just generally enjoyed hanging out with each other in the beautiful surroundings. I became friends with them, saw what kind of people they were, and thought it would be fun to jam on a pod and get more of the real story behind all the recent hype.

Ray Youssef, CEO of Paxful - A True "Hero's Journey", That Brought Bitcoin to Millions
Ray is the co-founder and CEO of Paxful, a platform that provides an open market place with over 350 ways to buy and sell bitcoin. Ray and his company have been a big part of providing solutions for those in underserved areas of the world, attempting to join and transact in the bitcoin economy. Having met Ray briefly at Bitcoin 2021, and after watching some of his other interviews, I thought he might have an interesting story to tell, and I was right. I REALLY enjoyed this conversation. It was a pleasure to connect with someone who's had as many interesting life experiences as Ray.

The Bitcoin 2021 Conference in Miami was a huge success, and a monumental event in bitcoin's history.  Over 13k people descended on Miami to come together, meet each other, build relationships, talk bitcoin, and have fun.   There was lots of tears, and special moments that many of us will remember for the rest of our lives.   I thought it would be fun to get some of the organizers from BTC Media together to discuss what went on behind the scenes, how it all came together, and what made it so special for all of them.   Enjoy!  --   More from them:  TWITTER (Nik): https://twitter.com/nikcantmine TWITTER (Dylan): https://twitter.com/BTCization TWITTER (CK): https://twitter.com/ck_SNARKs TWITTER (Brandon): https://twitter.com/BranBTC   More from me:  TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY   The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Developing a Rational Perspective on Fossil Fuels and Climate Change w/ Alex Epstein
Alex Epstein is philosopher, and the author of 'The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels'.   I've appreciated Alex's work in helping to bring balance to the discourse around climate change, and in particular the role played by fossil fuels in that dynamic.   The narrative around fossil fuels and climate change has become so ingrained in our culture, that if you question it, you are often ridiculed, derided, or labeled a 'denier'.  I appreciate that Alex is willing to take the criticism so that we all may hear what he has to say, and hopefully develop a more truthful perspective on the matter.    Enjoy!    --    More from Alex:   TWITTER: https://twitter.com/AlexEpstein  YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/user/ImproveThePlanet  WEBSITE: https://industrialprogress.com   More from me:   TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA  YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg  MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex  INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY    The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Caitlin Long of Avanti Bank on How Bitcoin Will Transform the Banking System

Mayor Scott Conger - Bitcoin for Better Cities
If you've been hanging out on twitter you may have seen several people with Laser eyes imposed over their profile pictures. Though this started as a meme around bitcoin reaching 100k dollars in price (#LaserRayUntil100k), it has become a signal for ones support of what bitcoin represents. Recently even some politicians in the US have been showing their alignment with bitcoin by changing their profile photos to the laser eyes. Mayor Scott Conger of Jackson, Tennessee, is one of those politicians, so I thought it would be fun to have him on the show to hear why he made this change, and to hear his thoughts on bitcoin and how it could be used to benefit his constituents.

Adam Ortolf (@denverbitcoin) on His Journey to Waste-Gas Bitcoin Mining (And Why It's So Exciting)
Adam Ortolf is the business development officer for the US market for Upstream Data, a company that pairs modular bitcoin mining datacenters to natural gas engines, to convert waste energy (natural gas), into the best form of money the world has ever known - bitcoin.

Bringing Back Craftsmanship - Chad Urban of the American College of Building Arts
In the bitcoin space we often discuss the many insidious impacts of being on a 'fiat' money standard. We also look to previous periods in which societies used 'sound money', to see what elements of culture, art, business etc. might have been impacted by the difference in monetary standard. As bitcoin develops, it's becoming clear that the change in time preference that it inspires in many (a changed relationship to time and work), is causing a re-emergence of appreciation for high-quality, highly-skilled, long-lasting, beauty-centric architecture and construction. The American College of Building Arts is taking a unique approach to education, teaching both the theory/philosophy, and the traditional methods required to create graduates who are highly-skilled craftsmen. I'm a huge critic of the current systems of education, and also very excited by the novel approaches beginning to be developed to improve it, so I thought it would be interesting to speak with someone who is building a solution of particular relevance to many of the topics we often discuss in bitcoin land.  Enjoy!  --  More from Chad / ACBA:  TWITTER (Chad): https://twitter.com/Chad_Urban  TWITTER (ACBA): https://twitter.com/ACBACharleston  WEBSITE: https://acba.edu  More from me:           TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA            YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg            MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex            INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY         Get 10% off on the Bitcoin 2022 Conference in Miami!

Nik Bhatia - Bitcoin is More than an Asset, it's a (New) Layered Financial System
Nik Bhatia is the author of the new book 'Layered Money: From Gold and Dollars, to Bitcoin and Central Bank Digital Currencies'.  In the book, Nik explores the history of our current financial system, and details the various layers which comprise it. He then analyzes bitcoin through a 'layered money' lens, and makes the case for why he believes it will evolve in to the future reserve currency of the world. As this is Nik's first book, I thought it would be interesting to discuss his writing experience, the challenges he encountered, and some the processes and tactics he used to get it over the line.  Enjoy!  --  More from Nik:  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/timevalueofbtc  BOOK: https://www.amazon.com/Layered-Money-Dollars-Bitcoin-Currencies/dp/1736110527/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1619467256&sr=8-1  More from me:          TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA           YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg           MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex           INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY       The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Tools of Sovereignty: Seed Signer - Build Your Own Bitcoin Signing Device
In this podcast, I speak with an anonymous bitcoin hardware tinkerer, who has designed an easy to build and use bitcoin transaction signing device, using generic parts, a 3D-printed enclosure, and some open-source software.   Such projects make it easier for individuals to build their own means of interacting with the bitcoin network, further enhancing their security and sovereignty, which is what this is all about!    Enjoy!    --    More from SeedSigner:   TWITTER: https://twitter.com/SeedSigner  WEBSITE: https://btc-hardware-solutions.square.site/ GitHub: https://github.com/SeedSigner/seedsigner   More from me:          TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA           YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg           MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex           INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY       The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Michael Krieger on Bitcoin 'Pleb' Culture (and lots more)
Michael Krieger is the creator and editor of the financial, economic, political and cultural blog, libertyblitzkrieg.com. He is also a long-time proponent of bitcoin.   Michael has been highly critical of policy measures enacted during the pandemic, and has been vocal in expressing his concern regarding potential future measures that further impinge on individual rights and freedoms. He has also recently come to appreciate the 'bitcoin pleb culture', and will be collaborating with a group of passionate bitcoiners (including myself), to publish a book on the subject, hopefully out in summer 2021. This was a very broad and wide-ranging discussion on the socio-cultural dynamics at play in the world today.    Enjoy!    --    More from Michael:   TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LibertyBlitz  WEBSITE: https://libertyblitzkrieg.com/  More from me:          TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA           YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg           MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex           INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY       The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Orange-Pilled at 19, Why Bitcoin is So Important w/ Dylan LeClair
I first came across Dylan on twitter, where I had been enjoying his takes on bitcoin, economics, sovereignty, politics and related topics. This led me to reading some of his work which had been published on his blog, as well as by Bitcoin Magazine.   I later found out that he was only 20 years old, and I was fairly blown away by the sophistication of his perspective on bitcoin, and his maturity and understanding of things more broadly.   Dylan seems to have always been a bright kid, but there is no doubt that the 'orange pill' has had a powerful effect on him, so I thought it would be fun to chat with him to hear more of his story and perspective on this rapidly evolving phenomenon.    Enjoy!    --    More from Dylan:   TWITTER: https://twitter.com/BTCization  WEBSITE: https://21stparadigm.com/   More from me:          TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA           YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg           MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex           INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY       The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Decentralized Grazing - Regenerative Cattle Co-ops and the Foundations of Bitcoin Citadels
Fiat money has created distorted incentives, and been the cause of a great many imbalances, and destructive trends economically, socially, and even spiritually.   Understanding this relationship, and the many insidious ways in which the effects of fiat money manifest themselves, does however take some time to see clearly.   The food industry, and in particular, sustainable, regenerative, family-led farming, is a particularly tragic casualty of our degrading and unfair system of money.   In this episode, I speak with two bitcoiners who recognize this, have felt it first hand, and who are working on a solution to turn it around.   They are using a first-principles, low time-preference approach to solving the problems of 'fiat-farming', by aligning incentives between nature, investor, and operator, to create a truly inspiring solution, that may very well serve as the foundational for the emergence of genuine Bitcoin Citadels (sovereign living).   I can't think of a podcast that has ever left me so excited, hope you enjoy it too!   --   More from my guests:  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/untappedgrowth TWITTER: https://twitter.com/BitcoinAndCows WEBSITE: https://untappedgrowth.com/decentralizedgrazing/  More from me:        TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA         YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg         MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex         INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY    The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Bitcoin and Behavior: Transformations from the Rabbit-Hole w/ @BangBitcoin
People who have fallen down the 'bitcoin rabbit-hole' often report dramatic changes to their thinking and perspective as a result of doing so, which leads to a variety of positive changes in their habits, behaviours, and lives generally.   It is such a common phenomenon, that it doesn't appear to receive that much attention amongst bitcoiners, despite how peculiar a phenomenon it is.   I happen to think that this is the MOST interesting aspect of bitcoin, because after all, what else is there other than how we act and interact?   In an effort to understand what's going on further, and showcase it to a broader audience, I've started a dedicated series to speak with people willing to share their stories of how bitcoin has motivated their transformations.    Enjoy!    --    More from BB:   TWITTER: https://twitter.com/BangBitcoin   More from me:         TWITTER: http://bit.ly/2P7PUjA          YOUTUBE: https://bit.ly/3aBbZxg          MEDIUM: http://bit.ly/2Zk0Dex          INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/30r7IqY     The BitBox02 Hardware Wallet is a safe and easy way to do so.

Tools of Sovereignty: Matt Hill of Start9 Labs on Sovereign Personal Computing
The best way to establish greater sovereignty, privacy and freedom in life is not to ask for it, but to engage the tools that make it possible.  This series explores the people and companies that are developing those tools, and explaining how they can be used to establish greater sovereignty in your life. Start9 Labs has developed a product called 'The Embassy', which is 'an elegant, plug-and-play personal server for running self-hosted software. It sits quietly on your shelf, running all day and night - your own private cloud. It offers one-click installation of powerful, open-source services like Bitcoin, Lightning, data storage, password management, instant messaging, social networking, and more. There is no command line involved, and no technical expertise required. You use your Embassy and its installed services in total privacy, right from the browser, from anywhere on Earth, and there are no trusted 3rd parties.' That sounds like just the kind of tool that I hope to explore and bring to light in this series.
