Bitcoin: Silk Road to Hell

 

So bitcoin is a can’t miss investment that is guaranteed to go up, right?  Steve Patterson joins me to discuss some of the reasons why that might not be the case.  Is bitcoin too volatile to be a useful currency?  Is bitcoin the AOL of cryptocurrencies?  How do you perform a valuation of bitcoin as you would other investments?  This fun conversation goes in many directions, covering topics like the Silk Road website, the NSA, pornography, gambling, privacy, competing currencies, and more.

Judgment and Responsibility with Darrell Becker and Wes Bertrand

In this conversation Darrell Becker and Wes Bertrand joined me to tackle the topics of judgment and responsibility.  I found that these two things, judgment and responsibility (or denial of responsibility as is often the case) often go together.  We discuss how these topics handled using Non-violent communication (NVC), and go over many examples, including events in the news, sexism, the Free Domaain Radio podcast, and more!
