Does power corrupt? Or do those prone to corruption end up in power? It's an age-old question answered by Dr Brian Klaas in his brand new book "Corruptible: Who Gets Power And How It Changes Us". I was lucky enough to get a copy and read the book over Christmas. In the middle of a world in which I have witnessed politicians do horrendous damage as …
 
Evergrande has been discussed at length during the GameStop saga. Many apes, both smooth and wrinklebrained, have pointed to Evergrande as a potential catalyst for a global economic crisis that could trigger... the MOASS. So I decided to get in tough with Dr Marco Metzler, who's company bought Evergrande bonds to discover more details on the debt s…
 
There have been several disparate but converging forces operating within the UK over the past few years - a creeping authoritarianism, increasing polarisation and politicisation, and the pandemic and all it's associated problems. The issue for me is that too often the first two are dismissed as irrelevant due to the pandemic, when in fact, I argue …
 
Is the establishment collapsing? With Boris and Prince Andrew coming under major scrutiny, I wanted to talk about whether the establishment might be on their last legs.

Austria is a country very close to my heart, so it has saddened me greatly to see what has become of such a wonderfully free place. It was my pleasure in this episode to get the time to speak to Austrian Bitcoin and privacy advocate Der Gigi - who has sadly left the country due to fear over covid restrictions. In this episode we dived into how Aust…
 
I've been having a lot of conversations with people about Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies and blockchain technology and about how they are going to change the world of finance. However, it wasn't until I got the chance to read Beyond Bitcoin: Decentralised Finance and the End of Banks by Steven Boykey Sidley and Simon Dingle that I really under…
 
Ted Reese is a Marxist and the author of: Socialism or Extinction, Humanising Production, and the upcoming book The End of Capitalism: The Thought of Henryk Grossman.

Why can't we get medicinal marijuana in the UK? The UK accounts for 70% of the export market around the world for medical cannabis and yet it seems there is no way to legitimately get a marijuana prescription. THANKFULLY, Alan Robinson, better known as NICannaguy on Instagram, is pushing the boat out and has opened the very first medicinal marijuan…
 
Over the past weeks and months I have endlessly heard about the migrant crisis in the channel and about untold numbers of folks crossing into Britain in order to seek asylum. I have had so many questions about the crisis that are simply not mentioned or addressed by those who are covering the issue - whether than is the papers or the BBC. So I deci…

I am delighted to have Peter McCormack, Bitcoin Maximalist and host of the What Bitcoin Did podcast on this episode of the show. I have been thinking a lot about the crumbling of the 20th-century institutions across the world, such as media, government, and finance, and wondering how we might achieve some sort of bloodless revolution. It's a diffic…
 
This is going to be a fun one, I can tell! I've been doing a lot of serious podcasts so I wanted to do some fun ones as well. I watched Woke: The Movie a few weeks back and had my mind blown a little. It's VERY off the wall, talks about Aliens, secret fleets of spaceships, bases in Antarctica, and human colonies on Mars - but there is a lot of fun …
 
Dr Lee Jones is a Professor of Political Economy & International Relations at the Queen Mary University of London.

Julian Winkler is the co-author of the paper "Reddit’s self-organised bull runs: Social contagion and asset prices". The paper makes a "theoretical case for how ‘hype’ among retail investors can drive large asset fluctuations". The paper was written before the GameStop Saga kicked off, but the interesting part about this for me was to get an unders…

Why Nations Fail is one of the best books I have read all year. Authors Acemoglu and Robinson insist that "development differences across countries are exclusively due to differences in political and economic institutions, and reject other theories that attribute some of the differences to culture, weather, geography or lack of knowledge about the …
 
Why Nations Fail may be the best book I have read this year, so I was absolutely delighted when both of the authors agreed to speak to me on my podcast! This is the first of these interviews, with Professor James A. Robinson. The main idea that I took from the book was that across history we can see that freedom - both political and economic - and …

It's no secret that I have been exploring some of the ideas of crypto currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum on this show. North Korea is also a fascinating story to me, I've been thinking about it a lot since the string of interviews conducted by North Korean defector Yeon-mi Park. So when this book about Virgil Griffith, Ethereum, North Korea, and …
 
Covid has caused massive upheaval and disruption around the world, but something I had not given a lot of thought to was the idea that disease shapes our political leanings. The concept of parasite stress is one that has been studied by my guest Dr Randy Thornhill for decades - it's the idea that the more infectious disease that is prevalent in a c…
 
A lot of the discussion about an inquiry into the covid response has been, in my view, poorly framed. There are massive lessons to be learned from this pandemic, but I believe that a huge segment of this is being ignored - what the cost of lockdowns will be and has already been. For this reason I spoke to wellbeing economist Paul Fritjers, co-autho…
 
Throughout the entire GameStop saga, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the idea of a hive mind. I’ve dedicated an entire chapter in my forthcoming book to this idea and I wanted to get Tim’s perspective. I first came across his work on hive minds when I saw his Ted Talk, “Changing the hive mind -- How social media manipulation affects everyth…

One of the biggest stories of the year is the release of the Pandora Papers, whilst we may still be at the beginning of the releases, there is already a lot of stories catching the headlines so I thought it was a great chance to talk about the offshore world and tax evasion more broadly. Joining me today to talk about the Pandora Papers and more is…
