#14: Interview with a Spartan
Today, I’m not only joined by a very special guest, but the format of this episode is highly unusual as well! I interviewed the man who goes by the name @DegenSpartan on Twitter and who is one of the biggest and most enigmatic Defi investors there is. I have wanted to have him on for a long time, but there was one problem: DegenSpartan, or DS in short, is fully pseudonymous and did not even want to have his voice known. So we looked for a solution and ended up doing a text interview instead. Then I got Patrick McCorry (@paddypisa on Twitter) to speak the part of DS in the final recording, while I spoke my own part. At this point, I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who reached out to us on Twitter and offered their help to make this episode a reality. I get that this isn’t your average podcast, and you can go and read the text interview instead if you want, but I think Paddy did a fantastic job and the final product came out great. Please enjoy! Discussed in this interview: DS: Degenerate or prudent investor? How he managed to recognize (and sell) the top in Defi His approach to investing Becoming Synthetix' patient zero Why he dislikes Maker, YFI, and governance tokens in general and more!

Guy's Take #37 - Dear James Woods, Sincerely Guy Swann
"All you can do with Bitcoin once you buy it is sell it, but you need somebody else to buy it from you." - Peter Schiff James Woods shared a tweet with what is, in the end, a generally rational skepticism and common initial impression of Bitcoin. From an article at Fox Business, that based its argument on a few quotes from the king and queen of Bitcoin trolls, Peter Schiff and Nouriel Roubini. "You can't do anything with it but sell it," they claim, "its a huge scam and pump and dump" they added. As a Bitcoiner I would obviously argue this is completely false, but its not easy at first to see why, and it takes a huge amount of history, and close scrutiny to see the bigger picture. That's why in this episode, I hope to answer the article, and maybe shed some light on why its views are wrong. Maybe James will listen to it, maybe not, but hopefully some skeptic out there can find value in hearing answers to very common, but ultimately very wrong views as to what Bitcoin is. Todays episode, I get into all of it, with "Dear James Woods." The tweet and article in question: https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1329513077654528002?s=20 As mentioned, a brilliant and extensive series hitting so many of these concepts in far greater detail, by the amazing author Parker Lewis, is the Gradually, Then Suddenly, series.

@MrTimothyAllen - Award Winning Human Planet Photographer! #90
BTC $ 18'768 Today's guest on the show is the award-winning Photographer @MrTimothyAllen who was one of the geniuses behind the Human Planet Series and an awesome Britcoiner! Join Tim and I as we face down questions from each of our kids about homeschooling, photography and #Bitcoin. Listen to some of the most amazing stories from far off worlds as Tim describes some of his work on the Human Planet series. Do you remember the scenes of a tribesman scaling a tree for honey or the guy crossing a raging river on a tightrope? How did Tim feel about the series filming an uncontacted tribe in Brazil and how have these peeks into primal humanity shaped his thinking about our species? What lead @MrTimothyAllen to #Bitcoin and how does he hope to be able to transition away from his current projects to somehow work in the #Bitcoin space? A huge thank you to @MrTimothyAllen for taking the time to come on the show and share these stories with us! Make sure you go and check out Tim's new project, a new movie that launches for free next week! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O59DuGXdCbM I stand on the shoulders of giants, these guys are amazing.
