Full Audio Show

Video Interview

On this week's episode, we tackle the growing rebellion against the conformist culture of college and discuss the need for creative and decentralized education options. We also attempt to settle the age-old divide between marketers and makers in tech, and we explore what makes companies, products, and careers truly great.

We're joined by special guest Ryan X. Charles, former astrophysicist, veteran of BitPay and Reddit, and current software engineer at BitGo. Ryan tells us about his experience in building Reddit's cryptoequity platform and shares his comments on BitGo's controversial defensive patent strategy. We also hear his thoughts on open source philosophy, the programming learning curve, and the practical freedom provided by decentralized technologies.
