Episode 48 • Africa – Economy, Trends and Technology

Listen on YouTube This episode, we continue with our series on geopolitics and dive head-first into the region of Africa.

There’s a lot of exciting things going on in one of the world’s largest emerging economies, so we think you’ll get a lot from this. We also cover our usual selection of news, from the world’s first ‘zero fiat’ Bitcoin bond to SpaceX’s crazy plan to make long-haul plane flights obsolete.

Episode 48 • Africa – Economy, Trends and Technology

Episode 47 • Internet Trends, Facebook Libra & Long Range Teslas

Listen on YouTube We unpack the 2019 Internet Trends Report by Mary Meeker of Bondcap, a compendium of data-packed slides covering all the things you need to know about where the internet is right now — and how people are using it. From overall internet usage stats, through to social media usage, algorithm usage and eCommerce statistics, there’s lots of exciting data — particularly if you’re an entrepreneur looking for your next big idea. In the news, the main topic of conversation is Facebook’s new “cryptocurrency”, Libra. It’s a controversial new stablecoin set to disrupt the financial services industry, with some interesting features and massive potential. We also cover Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory, which is starting to install production equipment, as well as their new high-range electric vehicle, with 620 miles of capacity in a single charge. If you’re a founder or creator, this episode will be right up your alley. Thanks for joining us! Join us on Telegram! Show Link...

Episode 46 • ️ Geopolitics, Global Trade Networks and Australia’s Journalist Crackdown

Listen on YouTube We’ve got a bumper episode for you this week. First, we begin our series on Geopolitics by doing a deep dive into trade wars, global commerce networks and China’s One-Belt, One-Road initiative. This covers a lot of ground, from military deployments of superpowers to a new Arctic trade route right through to the many ways that China are expanding their global trade network through debt-funded developments. We also discuss a number of tricky issues presented by our current geopolitical system. On the news side, we look at the recent police raids on Australian journalists and discuss the consequences of our increasingly Orwellian ‘national security’ laws in the Western World. We also look at the latest in Bitcoin, some new developments out of EOS (including their new social media platform) and discuss the rapid growth in enterprise blockchain consortiums. In our Privacy and Security segment, we discuss Unroll.me, a service to unsubscribe from all those pesky email...

Episode 45 • Globalcoin, Trust Scores, Tunnels & Trains

Audio warning: we’re really sorry; Joe’s computer didn’t record the audio properly this episode, so we’re relying on Matt’s version of the audio recording, so the episode sounds sub-par. Listen on YouTube This episode, we discuss a host of Bitcoin news involving AT&T, whole foods, and a raft of other retail brands. We also cover the 51% attack on Bitcoin Cash / BCH, CoinGecko’s new trust score. We move on to discussion about Facebook’s “GlobalCoin” currency, DHS’ drone service, 1TB MicroSD cards and a host of tunnel, train and transport news from the Boring Company, China, Ford and Dyson. Finally, we wrap things up with an introduction to Maildrop, a temporary email address service — followed by a call with Dan. Check it out!
