David Priess returns to
deliver a colorful political history of the schemes, maneuvers, and
conspiracies that have attempted to remove unwanted presidents. He discusses
the various President’s who’ve died in office of natural and unnatural causes
including two President’s who some suspect may have been poisoned and a
bizarre conspiracy by a cabal of wealthy businessman to overthrow President
Franklin Roosevelt. He explains the 25th Amendment which allows for the
President’s Cabinet and Congress to declare a leader physically or mentally
unfit to serve, the two Presidents who played instrumental roles in crafting
it, and the closest we ever came to using it. He walks us through the
surprising history of Presidential mental illness and why some of Richard
Nixon’s closest advisors questioned whether he was mentally stable. We talk
about the process of impeachment, when Presidential lies rise the level of a
"high crime or misdemeanor," and whether he thinks Congress could
realistically impeach President Trump. Plus, the man who served as the daily
intelligence briefer to former FBI director Robert Mueller weighs in on the
Russia investigation, what might be going through Mueller's mind right now,
and what we can expect as the investigation winds toward a conclusion.

In a first-ever two-hour episode for Venture Stories by Village Global, Erik
talks to two of the most interesting crypto thinkers around: Arjun Balaji
(@arjunblj), crypto investor, trader and incubator, and Murad Mahmudov
(@MustStopMurad), crypto analyst and angel investor.
In this wide-ranging and mind-expanding interview, the three discuss a number
of topics relating to cryptocurrencies, effects on government, economic
history, and predictions for the future, among many other things including:
\- The arguments for Bitcoin over other cryptocurrencies and whether Bitcoin
can be toppled
\- Why Bitcoin is less like digital gold and more like “digital nuclear
\- Whether Bitcoin will be “the MySpace of money”
\- A history of the Austrian school of economics
\- The impacts of hard forks on a community
\- How competition between monies accelerates capitalism
\- Whether blockchain as a technology is overrated or underrated
\- The parallels between cryptocurrency and the Asian construction bubble
\- Institutional movement into cryptocurrencies
\- The psyche of crypto hedge fund managers
\- How crypto changes how countries compete for tax revenues
Quotable lines from this episode:
“The creation of a non-sovereign sound money system has the potential to be
one of the most significant events in our lifetime.” - AB
“I view money as a good, just like anything else, and I don’t believe we have
pure capitalism until we have competition among currencies.” - MM
“Cryptocurrencies in general and in particular Bitcoin are a higher quality
form of money.” - MM
“Through the fat money lens, all tokens are cryptocurrencies.” - AB
“The whole market is like a prediction market for which one or few coins will
be the long term money winner.” - MM
“Bitcoin is the Schelling point of the market”. - MM
“Despite all the fancy bells and whistles that blockchains enable, the fact
that nobody can print more Bitcoin is the greatest innovation here.” - MM
“The idea that money has to be continuously in circulation is completely non-
“We’re not trying to build another PayPal here, we’re trying to disrupt
central banking.” -MM
“Miners don’t control Bitcoin, businesses don’t control bitcoin, users and
full nodes control Bitcoin.” - AB
“As time goes on, everyone is going to become a Bitcoin maximalist whether
they like it or not.” - MM
“The number one thing that we can learn from economic history is that if there
is an actor that can create more money, they will.” - AB
“If there’s free competition around money then the market would never
naturally converge around something [the US Dollar] that is expanding at 6% a
year. It’s totally irrational.”
“Just as we witnessed the separation of church and state, in the next 20-30
years we are going to witness the separation of money and state.” - MM
“People who say capitalism is dead or that we are entering the end of
capitalism don’t know what they are talking about, because capitalism is going
to go into overdrive.” -AB
“What previously took a 200-person team in 2000, took a 100-person team in
2007 and takes a 5- or 10-person team now.” - AB
“We’re entering an era where businesses will be able to be built and run on
the internet by one person.” - AB
“These tokens suck as money or are absolutely and utterly useless.” -MM
“Almost all of these tokens were unethical fundraising scams by the founders.”
“This whole thing [the ICO boom] was a form of IQ arbitrage, where people took
advantage of these overvalued shit tokens… Do you want to walk around New York
and use a different form of currency at each store?” - MM
“Erik, if you’re looking to hold your wealth in the equivalent of gift cards
to the Gap, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.” - AB
“The hype around blockchain is nothing more than an indicator that Silicon
Valley is largely oriented less around the original counterculture movement
and much moreso positioned as a form of opportunistic greed behaviours.” - AB
“The monetary premium that is embedded inside [altcoins] is purely
psychosocial, it’s purely cognitive. It’s almost like an ongoing hallucination
of our collective unconsciousness.” - MM
“The recurring selling of narratives that Murad mentioned is the core business
of most crypto hedge funds. They’re not active traders, they’re just early
investors that then sell the dream and then sell their bags on many retail
investors.” - AB
“One of my favourite things that Murad has ever said is that blockchains don’t
create revenues, they destroy revenues.” - AB
“If your product is open source and your rent is too high, you risk getting
forked or re-architected by someone else charging less, and it becomes a race
to the bottom.” - MM
“Let’s be honest, on-chain governance is essentially the rule of the rich.” -
“No governance is the best governance, or at least for neo-gold.” - MM

Around the same time Sister Cathy went missing in 1969, Father Maskell started
looking for a confidential secretary. Student Lil Hughes (Knipp) agreed to
fill this position. Some episode corrections: Lil has 7 siblings, not 8. Her
dad was in the service but was home for Christmas. When Lil mentioned that
those who work in a private school has access to a lot of information, she
would like to clarify that files are kept confidential HOWEVER she believes Fr
Maskell bullied the nuns at the school and acted as though he was the person
in charge. This provided him with access to private and confidential
information on students. Join Gemma Hoskins and Shane Waters as they continue
