What a joke of an episode. Can't believe you'd have someone like this on such a great podcast. I still love your podcast but did this guess ever miss the mark. None of what he said was based on actual facts. Every single thing he said was an opinion which he played off as objective science based facts. I feel sorry he's been so brainwashed. He could have talked about how Bitcoin isn't actually harmful to the environment but he pretty much just denied climate change and said wind turbines don't actually make any electricity. Definitely lost a few brain cells with this one

I love the strategies he uses to explain. I think I was overwhelming the people who I tried to explain how to get started to.
