A really great conversation with James and Graham from 'ID Theory' a thematic crypto investment vehicle. We discuss the journey James and Graham went on from being a genetic scientist and a poker entrepreneur respectively to the leaders of their newly launched crypto focussed investment fund.

Orca Rising

16-year-old Ocean Daley needs to get away from school, his seaside town and wasting his summer working for his mother’s irritating boyfriend. When his mysterious Uncle Frank offers him a place at a summer school for a select group of gifted teens, he jumps at it.

But the school isn’t like any other, with classes in hacking, bike racing, psychological tricks and combat. Orca, the secretive organisation behind the school, needs fresh recruits…but for what? Ocean’s father co-founded Orca, and joining the organization feels like a way to honour his memory, as well as strengthen bonds with his strange uncle.

Orca demands each teenager push themselves beyond the possible and in return each student gets an impressive salary, international travel and exhilarating field missions — a double life. There is one catch. Joining Orca is a life-binding commitment to support their ‘noble' cause. For Ocean, it’s the challenge in life he’s been looking for.

Others might call it a trap.

December 6, 2018

We talk to Murad Mahmudov about the origin of money, gold, fiat currencies and the role Bitcoin will play in the financial system and the world.

After his hugely successful episode with Anthony Pompliano (check out our recording with Pomp too!) we wanted to record a 'prequel' to that episode to set the context of Bitcoin against the current economic system and how we arrived there.

This is a must listen episode for anyone who wants to understand the context of Bitcoin in the current financial system and why it is the natural, logical next step for humanity to adopt it globally.
