My guest today is Bradley Rettler. Bradley is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wyoming and a member of the research collective Resistance Money alongside Andrew Bailey and Craig Warmke. In this episode we discuss how Bitcoin connects to progressive values like privacy, freedom, economic justice and inclusion. We also discuss Bitcoin’s potential for marginalized groups, protesting authoritarian regimes, campaign finance reform, reproductive rights, philosophy, critical thinking, renewable energy, and Bitcoin’s independence from government control. Bradley is one of my favorite people to talk to about Bitcoin and how it can intersect with the real world and these things we as progressives really care about, and I couldn’t be more excited for “Resistance Money” the book to be published in the coming months, which we will keep you all posted on.
