Dr. Tiffany Graham of Springs Integrated Health rejoins the program for a special simulcast episode with her new podcast, The Climax w/Dr. Tiff! She and Tatiana talk about dating under lockdown and why swiping apps have been unsatisfying. They discuss masculinity and what level of it is appropriate, as well as how much political beliefs should play a factor in relationships. Learn all about trauma bonding, why the goal of anything you do shouldn't be the climax, and what the stars have in store for you in 2021! About the Guest: Even though she is not a native of Colorado Springs, Dr. Graham has always felt like this is home. Growing up across the country, summers were spent visiting family in Colorado Springs and adventuring in the nearby mountains.

WBD273 - Shit Bitcoiners Say with Rusty Russell

Bitcoiners can be firm in their views and are often called toxic by outsiders; however, this toxicity plays an important role. Bitcoin is a threat to the legacy financial system. It is therefore open to a broad range of attacks from technical to social and Bitcoin's immune system defends against these attacks to protect the protocol. In previous episodes, I have looked at the pros and cons of toxicity and how it acts as an immune system for Bitcoiner. Does this immune system lead to silly narratives going unchallenged? Can Bitcoin fix everything or are we missing critical nuanced debates regarding its potential? Rusty Russell is somewhat of a contrarian in the Bitcoin space. He is a lightning network developer for Blockstream but also runs the Shit Bitcoiners Say Twitter account which regularly calls out some of the more overzealous and outlandish claims by Bitcoiners. In this interview, Rusty and I discuss the lightning network, open-source development, narratives and overzealous B...

What's Next on the Horizen with Rob Viglione - The Tatiana Show Ep. 284

Rob Viglione from Horizen Labs returns to the show to talk about what's new with the project and the state of the union with crypto overall! The conversation kicks off with Josh discussing his recent experience with crypto lending, and Rob talks about why he's both skeptical and excited about what the De-Fi trend means for both crypto and physical-world economics. Rob gives his thoughts on the recent de-listing of some privacy-centered currencies by exchanges, and the careful balance crypto projects have to strike between privacy and compliance. He also spills the dirt on the new initiatives Horizen has in the pipeline, including new partnerships and innovations the company is experimenting with. Plus, a great primer on what exactly Horizen is and how it works for those unfamiliar with the project, discussions about decentralization and how to make crypto more mainstream, and predictions for 2021! About the Guest: Rob is a former physicist and mathematician with experience working o...

WBD272 - The Case for $500K Bitcoin with Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss

In August, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss released The Case for $500K Bitcoin. A paper that outlines the value proposition of Bitcoin, why it is a superior store of value and hedge against inflation than either gold, oil and the US dollar. In the paper, they describe the world as '˜drowning in debt', even before the coronavirus outbreak, and predict that the pandemic may cause everyone to come face to face with the reality of debt spiralling out of control. While the impact on the world may be scary for the broader economy, the twins outline Bitcoin as a major winner in this scenario and predict Bitcoin's market cap to grow from its current market capitalisation (approx. $225 billion) to that of gold (approx. $9 trillion). With the price of a Bitcoin at around $550K. We discuss their paper, why Bitcoin is the best hedge against inflation, the debt reckoning and Wall Street investing in Bitcoin.
