About the Episode

He just turned 73, but John remains full of vigor. When we spoke, he was enjoying life on the Outer Banks.

No stranger to public attention, John has been in contentious battles with multiple governments, ran two public companies, made big bets, and is running for president in 2020.

John and I discussed his entrance into the bitcoin world, standing up to the S.E.C., the smartest man in the world, what we need to do for bitcoin to be a revolution (not just an asset class) and much, much more!
