Topics of the week

  • The market hit lows below 6k, and we talk about how we feel about it
  • The stock market had a large crash, do crypto and the regular market correlate?
  • Catching the middle of a move versus trying to sell the exact top or buy the exact bottom
  • Following bitcoin versus alt coins during down trends
  • The US Senate held a hearing about crypto currency and ICOs, and we discuss what was said and how we felt about it.

Jay and Aaron and the Coin Talk Show

Aaron Lammer runs the Longform podcast — where they interview non-fiction writers. It’s one of my personal favorite interview podcasts. Jay Kang is a Vice News correspondent on HBO and a Writer at Large for the New York Times magazine.

Here’s a segment Jay did for Vice News on crypto:

They are both super interested in crypto, and started the Coin Talk Show to translate crypto to the rest of the world. It’s a really great show, and while it’s appropriate for non-technical listeners, I think they are doing a great job covering the industry in general. They are really funny and great conversationalists.

I was actually a guest on Coin Talk for episode one, if you want to check that out. But every episode has been good in my opinions. Be sure to subscribe to it by searching your podcast apps, or via their Medium page.
