Explaining New Technology: Helping Others Understand 'Crypto' Whilst Still Learning Ourselves

Juan has been teaching his family about Ethereum and I've been changing the way I look at the difference between Bitcoin and everything else.

In Episode #313 of 'Meanderings' Juan and I discuss: how a Piccolo latte should be made, how The Coffee Club screwed over Juan (again lol), reading Saifedean Ammous's book on BTC and how it is the only real cryptocurrency, why I'm a slight nuisance at almost all times and why for all the crypto talk not everything needs to be decentralised.

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
