You, Me, and BTC Podcast E293

This is episode 293 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Also this week, we'll think about the ancient Egyptians and history in general. How the heck can we know what really went down when all we have is a few paragraphs from some …

Nobody Buys Art With Bitcoin – Bitcoin and the Arts #11

Buying Art With Bitcoin

This is another Bitcoin and the Arts podcast with John Stuart! This month, John is chatting about some high-class artists who refuse to sell their work for Bitcoin. Some journalists from Observer recently visited a large art show and discovered that none of the artists were interested in Bitcoin. Many even scoffed at it.

Should this bother crypto-loving artists (like John)? Should we just let those people reject Bitcoin and move on? Are …

Imogen Heap & Mycelia – Bitcoin and the Arts #10

Imogen Heap's Mycelia

This is another Bitcoin and the Arts podcast with John Stuart! This month's show is all about an idea that is still developing in the mind of singer-songwriter Imogen Heap.

Forget Tidal: Be Your Own Artist – Bitcoin and the Arts #4

Tidal Music Streaming

This is John Stuart's fourth Bitcoin and the Arts podcast!

This month, John's chatting about a new music streaming service called Tidal. It's supposed to be an amazing innovation for artists because it should give them more control over their music, but John has some doubts. For one thing, the artists currently running Tidal are already extremely popular and presumably prosperous names like Jay Z, Madonna, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, etc.

So do "artists" …

YMB Podcast E23: MoneGraph and Art as a Currency

Your three favorite hosts are back together again this week to talk about a new service and some interesting concepts. MoneGraph is that new service and it allows you to create digital deeds for online art. These deeds are Namecoin records that can be traded but not duplicated, meaning digital artists can actually retain or sell "original copies" of their work. This concept is definitely exciting, but we are not entirely sure it will be …
