In this episode I chat with Ryan X. Charles - Reddit’s former cryptocurrency engineer and now CEO and co-founder of Yours.org about the future of getting paid for creating and discovering content with micropayments through Bitcoin.
Today I talk with a self taught programmer and former co-worker Will Ricketts. Will recently moved to Washington after a few years in Atlanta and was kind enough to join me on the show while he’s back in Atlanta to get his car to finalize his move out of the southeast.
The BBC recently covered esports: both the sexism within it and the gender pay gap. Today I discuss why the both of these are bullshit.
