Over the last couple of years, I had the pleasure of speaking on various podcasts, conferences, and live shows to talk about Bitcoin and its implications. While the conversations mostly revolve around Bitcoin, they sometimes stray into other, related topics.
In the hectic world of today, it is often challenging to find the time to read long articles and books, which is why I love podcasts and recorded conversations of all kinds. If you do too, here are some conversations and talks where I share my thoughts about Bitcoin. There are also some guest posts and popular twitter threads linked at the bottom of this page.
