Real interviews for real bitcoiners.

Warning: this show contains critical thinking and real conversations with real bitcoiners. Both the host and the guests are not afraid of being critical, they constantly express the unpopular opinions that others don't even dare to utter, but in the end still conclude that Bitcoin is still the best money system humanity has ever had. It's going to take over the world, but we must ensure we use all the best practices of sovereignty and self custody. If you do proceed in spite of this warning, you will have a lot to learn from genuine people who use Bitcoin all around the world. While Bitcoin's financial, social and political takeover happens, you can learn more about it on the Bitcoin Takeover Podcast!
