If you are a newbie to cryptocurrency and blockchains, then you can feel threatened, especially because this whole area is filled with a bunch of marketing lingo and filled with a bunch of fluff.
Normally, it is best to head straight to the source and have you check out the BitCoin white paper, which was created by Satoshi Nakamoto. You could even look at more relevant and up to day literature. Yet, if you are like some people then you are better at listening then reading to learn, you might want to check out these podcasts.
Magical Crypto Friends
This podcast is all about Bitcoin. It is hosted by WhalePanda, an anonymous trader along with Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin, Riccardo Spagini from Monero, and Samson Mow, CSO of Blockstream. This podcast has a new episode every month. They have checked out topics like decentralization, regulation and the changes that Bitcoin has seen.
Steal This Show
Even though it is not just about Blockchain, this podcast created by TorrentFreak has covered this topic several times. It is hosted by Jamie King, activist and film maker. They have covered topics like BitTorrent recently purchasing TRON, cryptocurrencies, BitTorrent, and Peer to Peer protocol. They have also covered concerns about blockchain which includes regulations and decentralization.
This podcast is by Laura Shin, but it is a great source to use to learn about blockchain. This podcast will provide plenty of insights from several bright minds like Emin Gun Sirer, a Cornell University professor, journalists like Aaron van Wirdum, and Jackson Palmer who created Dogecoin.
Off The Chain
This podcast allows entrepreneurs a chance to share their thoughts on blockchain and the future of it. One of the best parts of the whole podcast is listening to all the people talk bad about each other and then snitch on all the shady tactics that they pull. This podcast has a lot of guests that pitch things but the host, Anthony Pomliano pushes it back in the right direction. They have had guests like Murad Mahmudov, a Bitcoin maximalist and cryptocurrency analysist and Abra founder, Bill Barhydt.
Another creation by Laura Shin, this podcast is one of the best that is focused on blockchain and cryptocurrency. It has a lot of in-depth conversations about blockchain and more from people like Jimmy Song, Bitcoin Developer, Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance and Riccardo Spagni, lead at Monero. When you first listen to it, you might think it is a bit intimidating, but it will be one of the best podcasts that you can listen to in order to get used to the tech for cryptocurrency and blockchain and even listen to discussions about what some of the biggest challenges are in this area.
Word to the wise, always take what you hear and use your own gut. You have to have a good understanding of how businesses and business leaders see cryptocurrency and blockchain or what they want you to believe about it.
