On today’s show I travel to Australia’s Gold Coast, the Miami beach down under where beer does flow and men do indeed chunder – all except my special guest Bitcoin Comedian Michael Connell. Michael talks to us about how he got into comedy and how he got into bitcoin. And throughout this episode we get to hear Michael’s classic and hilarious bits about money, the NSA, philosophy and of course bitcoins! Listeners get ready to laugh your butts off and rest assured that this is clean comedy that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
Backbone to the financial system? Powering decentralized technology? The first true world currency? There is probably who hasn’t dreamt of a world ten years from now when Bitcoin would be all those things. The promise of cryptocurrencies are enormous, but will Bitcoin really emerge as the winner? And how can we reconcile this grand vision for Bitcoin with an ecosystem where projects launch new coins and blockchains every day?
We could hardly have better guests than Chief Liberty Officer of Liberty.me, Jeffrey Tucker, and Roger “Bitcoin Jesus” Ver, investor in some of the most successful Bitcoin companies like Blockchain.info, BitPay, and Kraken. We will talk about Jeffrey’s latest book “Bit By Bit: How P2P Is Freeing the World”, businesses that Roger is involved in, their path to Bitcoin, and how it relates to the philosophy of liberty and the Austrian school of economics.

Edward Griffin look at the central banking scam, the crisis in Greece, the inevitability of economic collapse, the possible collapse of the Euro, widespread panic in the Eurozone, Gold as a historical store of financial value, the practical impossibility of solving the problems in Greece and fiat currency withdrawals.

I travel down under to Adelaide, Australia to speak with Simon Edhouse, the CEO of BitTunes. BitTunes is reinventing global music distribution by creating a people powered platform. Simon talks to us about how this platform allows P2P file sharing to achieve its full potential as the optimal internet distribution mechanism and how he aims to monetize the exchange of digital data. Simon is a man of conscience who has been following the legacy of his family in working for the greater good. It’s not just about making money folks, sometimes it’s about doing what is right for humanity.
