TPB44 – The Fight for Freedom and Sovereignty with Jameson Lopp

Today we are joined by Jameson Lopp – privacy expert, technologist, cypherpunk, co-founder and CTO of Casa, and more. Jameson is a guru in all things privacy and building tools that empower individuals. This was a rich conversation about privacy, self-sovereignty, Jameson’s experience disappearing into ultimate privacy after a swatting experience, the future of technologies like bitcoin, nostr, and more. I think these types of conversations are really important for folks to begin to understand, and how folks on the left who value human freedom and humanitarian issues may see the value in these tools and methods that empower and protect individuals.
