043. BEST OF SPEAKING OF CRYPTO 2018 – PART ONE

The best of the best. Blockchain experts share their ideas, their big picture thinking around what’s going on in the blockchain ecosystem.

003. Blockchain 101 and Getting Into Crypto with Shannon Grinnell, interviewed by Lisa Pickering

I’m shaking things up and turning the microphone around! Instead of doing the interviewing, I brought on a fellow TV veteran, Lisa Pickering, to interview me.

I thought it would be good idea to talk about why I’m doing this podcast and what was it that motivated me to start learning about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology in the first place. And what it comes down to is trying to make the technology, that I find incredibly exciting and revolutionary, easy to understand.

Lisa Pickering, my interviewer, and I worked together years ago as Television Producers at MuchMusic in Toronto. We both come from a television background and we’re both fascinated by what’s happening in the blockchain space so we go through some of the basics, from a beginner’s perspective on what’s going on and what’s exciting for the future of this space.

NOTE: there is one moment of explicit language in case you are language sensitive.
