S2 E11: Brent Philbin on Bitcoin-only conferences and podcasting
There seems to be a popular opinion among bitcoiners that the podcast market is oversaturated with too much content. However, this is only true if we assume that the number of guests is rather limited and there are only a few worthwhile perspectives which deserve to be presented.
However, Bitcoin Takeover and Crypto Basic are two unconventional podcasts which ultimately try to promote the idea that there are lots of interesting folks in the Bitcoin space. Having influencers on your show to talk about their latest software launches or business ventures is always nice, but at the end of the day it’s just as useful to document the stories of individuals who project their hopes and expectations onto Bitcoin.
Around the time we recorded the podcast, Brent had just returned from SXSW in Austin, Texas and was disappointed with the small amount of BTC-related presentations at the event. Therefore, an important topic of our conversation revolves around the scarcity of pure Bitcoin-only conferences and why they are needed.
Furthermore, Brent Philbin talks about the experiences he acquired while doing the Crypto Basic podcast and his involvement in the world of professional poker. In the end, we have a rather interesting conversation which reflects the struggles and existential problems of two bitcoiners.
