    Why You Should Leave Your Country | Andrew Henderson

    Why You Should Leave Your Country | Andrew Henderson

    Is it a good idea to diversify your citizenship given the current global landscape? 

    We brought on Andrew Henderson, an entrepreneur, a global citizen to nearly a dozen countries around the world, and the founder Nomad Capitalist - a company that helps people maximize their freedom by getting multiple citizenships and passports.

    Hear why considering a second or even a third citizenship might be beneficial, the most crypto-friendly jurisdictions, and what an exit tax entails. Andrew also shares why he renounced his US citizenship and provides insights into the costs and process of obtaining a second passport.

    Mike Solana: Trump, Crypto, Tech, Politics & Memetic Wars

    Mike Solana: Trump, Crypto, Tech, Politics & Memetic Wars

    Is the U.S going to be ok?

    Mike Solana (no relation to Solana the chain, that’s his name),is the editor-in-chief of Pirate Wires and the guy who broke the Trump Memecoin news.

    We brought him on the show today to try to make sense of the current state of politics in the face of the upcoming election, and what it all means for crypto.

    Expect to learn why tech has pivoted right, why democrats are cracking down on crypto, why media in 2024 is fundamentally broken and much more.

    Chevron Deference: 40-Year Decision Reversed & Explained | Justin Slaughter

    Chevron Deference: 40-Year Decision Reversed & Explained | Justin Slaughter

    Is the Chevron Deference case good for crypto? Is it good for the U.S.? Or is this a giant tradeoff that will lead to bad outcomes? 


    Crypto enthusiasts, pro-tech individuals, and those on the right say this will stop regulators from making random rules.


    Non-crypto sources, mainstream media, and those on the left say it will lead to chaos, unchecked corporations, and poor governance.


    So, what’s the truth? That’s what we’re here to find out. Our guest today is Justin Slaughter, current policy director at Paradigm and previous senior adviser of the SEC and chief policy adviser of the CFTC.

    PleasrDAO Releases Secret Wu-Tang Album | Leighton Cusack & Matt Metkov

    PleasrDAO Releases Secret Wu-Tang Album | Leighton Cusack & Matt Metkov

    David is joined by Leighton Cusack and Matt Metkov, two members of PleasrDAO, the organization that owns and is releasing the Wu-Tang Album. 

    The Wu-Tang Clan created a unique album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” to combat music’s devaluation in the digital age. It was bought by Martin Shkreli in 2015, who later lost it due to a fraud conviction. In 2021, PleasrDAO, a crypto collective, purchased the album to restore its value and make it accessible to the public, promoting fairer digital ownership in the Web3 era.

    Hear how you can own the most exclusive music album and help support the movement.

    Is Crypto Still in a Bull Run? | RSA+DH

    Is Crypto Still in a Bull Run? | RSA+DH

    Is the crypto bull market over? The crypto sentiment has suddenly flipped bearish. The skeptics are saying that the ETH ETF will amount to nothing. Gox will dump on you. There are no new crypto use cases. There’s too much token supply. The bearish list goes on.

    So what gives? Is this just summertime slowness or is the bull market over?

    The Case for Authoritarianism | Vitalik Buterin & Noah Smith

    The Case for Authoritarianism | Vitalik Buterin & Noah Smith

    What if the information anarchy of the internet spells the downfall of liberalism?

    Economist Noah Smith and Ethereum Founder Vitalik Buterin join us for a fascinating discussion on why Authoritarianism might be the answer to the current information warfare. Yes, you heard that right.

    We start the episode by defining liberalism, how it has brought excessive polarization and why totalitarianism might be the only solution left. We then steelman the case against this same argument and how blockchains and crypto could play a role in all this.

    Why We Should Fight for Freedom of Speech | Greg Lukianoff

    Why should we fight for Freedom of Speech?

    That’s the question that Free Speech Lawyer and Writer Greg Lukianoff helps us answer today.

    Using first principles, Greg goes deep into the importance of Freedom of Speech, “Free Speech Culture”, what happens to Free Speech when new technologies like the printing press and the internet are introduced, and how all this intersects with blockchains and crypto.

    Diaries of an ETH Maxi on Wall Street | Sam Jernigan

    Diaries of an ETH Maxi on Wall Street | Sam Jernigan

    Sam Jernigan, the “Unofficial ETH Maxi of Wall Street”, has been evangelizing Ethereum to institutional funds and billionaires from inside the house for the past five years.

    Having the perfect blend of deep Ethereum knowledge and the full Wall Street experience, Sam guides us through how he became an ETH Maxi, why the lack of understanding of ETH in TradFi is the most bullish case for the asset and what the future holds for ETH institutional adoption.

    In this episode, David Hoffman is joined by Matthew Sigel, Head of Digital Assets Research at VanEck, to unpack VanEck's groundbreaking ETH 2030 report. They discuss the $154,000 bull case, $22,000 base case, and $340 bear case for Ethereum, and the factors behind these predictions.

    The End of the Petrodollar | Luke Gromen

    The End of the Petrodollar | Luke Gromen

    “Energy is the base layer of money” -  that’s how our guest Luke Gromen puts it in today’s episode.

    Luke is an Author and Investor who gives us a completely new way to look at money, through the lens of energy costs. 

    The essential learning of today’s show is that you can’t understand money until you understand energy markets. Apart from that Luke explains why the price of oil is about to force a monetary system change, why the 60/40 portfolio is dead and much more.
